Local, state and federal officials continue trying to address the Flint water crisis. This week, we’ve seen disagreement between Mayor Karen Weaver and the Snyder administration over the removal of lead service lines and over who should remove them. Also, a $30 million dollar state appropriation for covering residents water bills was approved by the Michigan House.

Current State talks with two veteran journalists from Flint’s newspaper of record. Bryn Mickle is the Editor of the Flint Journal and Ron Fonger writes regularly about the water emergency.
