Passing the Blame Buck on the Flint Water Crisis

Hosted by

Michigan's Republican Governor Rick Snyder took a beating today at a congressional hearing on lead poisoning in the City of Flint's water supply. Pennsylvania Senator Matt Cartwright challenged his claim that he took "immediate action" as soon as he learned about the lead issue, and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy testified that "the state provided our regional office with confusing, incomplete and absolutely incorrect information. Their interactions with us were intransigent, misleading and contentious." Chad Livengood covering the hearing for the Detroit News.
