Governor schedules on-the-job training

Posted By on Fri, Sep 25, 2015 at 11:05 AM

A long-time state employee sent me a note this morning saying Gov. Asa Hutchinson's office was holding a mandatory training session for agency heads and their lawyers on governing and advising an agency. It's scheduled Oct. 9.

I asked the governor's office. Spokesman JR Davis responded:

The office is partnering with the AG's office to provide training on issues relevant to the agencies such as FOI compliance and the rules/reg approval process.

Better late than never. Snark: Perhaps somebody should schedule FOI compliance time with Attorney General Leslie Rutledge herself. See Judge Mackie Pierce's ruling on her advice that information bearing on the credibility of the head of a law enforcement agency — ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet — was of no "compelling public interest." He was fired as a state trooper recruit for lying and he didn't disclose that experience in future law enforcement jobs.

A refresher course on U.S. Supreme Court decisions relative to abortion might be useful for the attorney general, too.
