House Oversight Committee Chair Steve Johnson (R-Wayland) today requested that the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) turn over any documents concerning COVID-19 citations given to the city of Port Huron that have not already been destroyed.
MIOSHA reportedly dismissed a case against the city of Port Huron after the city decided to contest charges while deposing MIOSHA’s director. During this legal dispute related to supposed violations of COVID-19 protocols, MIOSHA reportedly destroyed and burned documents.
