LANSING, Mich. – Today, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement after Governor Snyder declared that he was ending bottled water services for the people of Flint:

“It’s beyond belief that the governor expects the folks in Flint to trust the government now, when they lied to our faces about lead in our water just a few years ago. That trust was broken, and families in Flint still don’t feel that the water in their homes is safe to drink. We won’t feel safe drinking our water until every bad pipe is replaced, and the administration that caused this disaster needs to make sure bottled water stays available until that happens.”
