Meanwhile, in Flint, new details have emerged about the ongoing water contamination crisis. Newly obtained documents show that when the state of Michigan loaned Flint $7 million in April 2015 in order to ease the city’s deficit so it could exit emergency management, a condition of the loan prohibited the city from returning to the Detroit system without state approval. This condition was imposed despite the fact that Governor Rick Snyder’s office was, by this time, well aware of the problems with the quality of Flint’s drinking water, which among other things was contaminated with lead. On Wednesday, Michigan House Minority Leader Tim Greimel and the Toledo Blade newspaper both called on Snyder to resign. Many Flint activists have also called for his arrest. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus are traveling to Flint, Michigan, and will host a “speak-out” on Friday for residents affected by the ongoing crisis.
