Cox Calls for Nessel to Release Dam Documents

The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding comments today by Attorney General Dana Nessel, claiming that state fines levied against the Edenville Dam had nothing to do with the dam’s devastating failure in May. 

“It is imperative to get to the truth of this tragedy, and the people of Michigan have a right to know whether these fines played any part in the dam’s failure. In the interest of open government, I am calling upon Governor Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel to release all state documents and correspondence regarding the Edenville Dam since the state took over monitoring its safety in 2018.”
