In State of the State, Snyder says Flint will be fixed

Governor Rick Snyder devoted most of his State of the State speech to the Flint water crisis.

Governor Snyder said the Flint water crisis was a failure of government on every level.

And he said the state has a responsibility to act.

“To you, the people of Flint, I say tonight, as I have before, I am sorry and I will fix it.”

The governor asked the Legislature to approve a 28 million dollar emergency appropriation for Flint and said a longer-term strategy to address water infrastructure in Flint and the rest of the state is under development.

The governor also promised to make public all his e-mails related to the Flint water crisis so people can get a better grasp on what went wrong.
