St. Paul- Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, released the following statement in response to the retirement announcement from Majority Leader Joyce Peppin, R-Rogers.
“Joyce’s leadership will be missed by our caucus and the legislature. She is not only a dedicated representative of her community, but of the state as a whole in her role as House Majority Leader,” said Speaker Daudt. “I applaud her work to rein in wasteful government spending and most recently, her groundbreaking effort to address sexual harassment in the workplace. As a team, we have accomplished a lot – lowering taxes, fixing roads and bridges, and beginning to unravel the damage done by Obamacare. I am sad to see my good friend retire from the House, but I wish her the best in her next venture.”
