Senate Committee Approves Almost $150 Million More for Flint Water Crisis
On Wednesday, the Michigan Senate Appropriations Committee approved another round of emergency spending to help with the Flint water crisis.
According to ABC 12, the money includes $25 million to replace thousands of underground lead pipes and will help Flint stay on Detroit water until the city is ready to switch to the KWA once it is completed. More funds will also go to intervention services for children with developmental delays associated with lead exposure.
The funding must next be approved by the full Senate, and then the House.
