Statement by Congressman Dan Kildee on State of Michigan Halting Flint Water Credits and Payments

February 9, 2017

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement today after the state of Michigan said it would end water credits for Flint families and additionally stop paying for the city’s drinking water through the Great Lakes Water Authority, despite the ongoing crisis:

“This decision is disappointing, since it was the actions by state government that created this crisis. This crisis is not over. The city still today must buy usable water from other communities instead of treating its own water at the city plant. This is because of decisions by unelected emergency managers that got the city into this emergency in the first place. Flint families still need the state to step up and do more until the city can treat its own water.”
