The following is a transcript of Gov. Asa Hutchinson's radio address for the weekend of Aug. 7, 2015:

For five miles east of McGehee, Highway 4 is as straight as the Delta farmland is flat. Headed toward the Mississippi River, you see the levee rising in the distance. A few houses appear on your left, and the road abruptly turns.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has been named vice chair of the National Governors Association Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee.

Hutchinson's office announced the selection on Saturday.

The Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee handles issues dealing with homeland security; the National Guard and homeland defense; criminal justice and public safety and veterans affairs.

Committee members are responsible for ensuring that governors' views are represented in shaping federal policy.

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson is defending a star on the Arkansas Flag representing the state's role in the Confederacy during the American Civil War. Calls to remove official confederate symbolism in southern states have grown louder after a white supremacist who regularly displayed the flag killed nine members of an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina.
