“I’m disappointed to see that the committee chair has chosen to stop taking testimony and that further meetings are not scheduled. We still have holes in the Flint Water Crisis timeline that cannot be filled by examining the emails. Key players in the crisis never testified before the Michigan legislature, including Gov. Rick Snyder, former Department of Environmental Quality Director Dan Wyant, former Treasurer Andy Dillon, and all of the emergency managers. These are the main decision makers in the Flint Water Crisis, and, without their testimony, the committee lacks the credibility that the public deserves. Looking forward, we have one chance to redeem the work of this committee, and that is coming up with recommendations from the full Legislature. Although I’m frustrated that we’re not hearing from the key players, I look forward to working with committee members to improve DEQ protocol and fix our broken emergency management law.”
