WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today on State Police Col. Mike Edmonson's decision to retire:

“Col. Edmonson made the right decision in retiring, and I thank him for his service,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “Unfortunately, his leadership had become a distraction during difficult times for Louisiana.  I encourage the Louisiana Legislative Auditor's Office and the Division of Administration to continue their investigations into out-of-state travel by State Police so that much needed reforms can be made to safeguard taxpayer dollars.”
