LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission today released the following statement from Director Loren Hitchcock:

“Our agency has been working with the legislative audit staff for the past several months to correct deficiencies in our financial reporting system. We addressed these issues in our testimony last week with legislators who are members of Legislative Joint Auditing-State Agencies. Following our testimony, legislators accepted our report and no additional questions were raised. Our agency has put in place more stringent financial controls and practices, and we’ll continue to cooperate with legislative audit to make sure our compliance procedures are working properly.”

“We are still in litigation and vigorously defending a lawsuit filed by Mr. Nelson, so we’re not going to comment further.”
