Senator Rest thanks former Commissioner Laura Bishop

Laura Bishop resigned from her post as the Commissioner of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) on July 6. Following her resignation announcement, Senator Ann Rest (DFL-New Hope) has released this statement:

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Laura Bishop for her hard work as the Commissioner of the MPCA, but also for her leadership as the chair of the Minnesota delegation to the Great Lakes Commission. As a Great Lakes Commissioner from the Minnesota Senate along with Senator Carrie Ruud, I have seen firsthand Laura’s bipartisan work in ensuring the vital resource of the Great Lakes is protected and her work toward climate resilience polices for all the Great Lakes states and Canadian provinces represented on the Commission.”

“Laura has also worked with communities across this state to develop innovative, community-centered approaches that protect Minnesota’s waters and environment for generations to come. Her visionary leadership is a testament to the legacy she leaves behind.”

Ann Rest represents District 43, which includes portions of the western suburbs of Hennepin County in the Twin Cities metro area.
