January 16, 2016

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement today after President Barack Obama’s emergency declaration for Flint:

“I welcome the President’s quick action in support of the people of Flint after months of inaction by the Governor.  The residents and children of Flint deserve every resource available to make sure that they have safe water and are able to recover from this terrible man-made disaster created by the state.”

Yesterday, Congressman Dan Kildee led a bipartisan effort in support of the Governor’s request for federal assistance. Kildee had long called for Governor Snyder to request federal assistance and take action for the people of Flint.
