Attorney General Dustin McDaniel issued an opinion today, requested by Rep. David Branscum, that the director of  the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality may not impose a moratorium or suspension of the processing of a permit for a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO). 

So forget that as an option on the hog feeding operation in the Buffalo River watershed. The law doesn't authorize it, McDaniel said.
