Michigan Gov. Wants State Response to Flint Water Crisis Investigated

1 minute read

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder called on Friday for an investigation into how his state’s Department of Health and Human Services handled the water crisis in Flint.

Snyder asked the state’s Auditor General and the HHS Inspector General to complete the investigation as soon as possible and promised to share the results with the public. The state government, which appointed the city’s emergency manager, has come under fire for not acting quickly enough to address lead contamination in the city’s water supply.

“The public health issues the people of Flint and Genesee County are facing warranted an internal review,” Snyder said in a press release. “I want some answers.”
