MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement:

“Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Commissioner Laura Bishop’s resignation instead of going through a Senate confirmation hearing is telling about her commitment to transparency and the state of Minnesota.

“Since her appointment, Bishop unilaterally moved to implement a mandate to model Minnesota’s emission standards after California by raising the cost of vehicles limiting options for Minnesotans.

“We applaud Senate Republicans for continuing to work in the best interest of our state to ensure government is always working to put our state’s families, businesses, and opportunities first.”
