RELEASE|April 22, 2021

Under the direction of Chairman Steve Johnson, the House Oversight Committee has issued a subpoena for the appearance of former MDHHS Director Robert Gordon. The Committee recently received subpoena power to investigate non-disclosure payments and separation agreements between state employees and their employers. Rep. Steve Johnson, Chairman of the Oversight Committee, has pursued answers from Gordon after it came to light that he received $155,000 in exchange for his signing of a confidential non-disclosure agreement.

“It is the responsibility of the Oversight Committee to ensure we provide answers to the people of Michigan. I am committed to ensuring a more transparent and honest government”, said Rep. Johnson. “Agreements signed in the dark for exorbitant sums of money is neither transparent nor honest.”
