ICYMI, the RGA submitted a FOIA request into the Sisolak Administration seeking communication records between the governor and his staff and the Nevada Bureau
of Health Care Quality and Compliance.
The FOIA request is based on reporting that the Sisolak Administration used their political connections to pressure the state licensing bureau to rush approval for a COVID testing lab that got 96% of cases wrong.
Las Vegas Sun:
The Republican Governor’s Association’s executive director sent a Freedom of Information Act request seeking more information on Sisolak’s role, and GOP gubernatorial candidates have also called him out.
“This bombshell report clearly shows the Sisolak administration pressured the licensing bureau to rush approval for a COVID testing company that missed 96% of cases — no doubt causing more COVID cases and more deaths,” said RGA spokeswoman Maddie Anderson in a statement. “Instead of deflecting blame, Sisolak must immediately apologize and launch an investigation into why his office was using its political power to pressure a state agency.”
