Sen. Ananich on Governor Snyder's Call for Investigation into State Department of Health and Human Services

LANSING, Mich. — Following Gov. Snyder’s call for an investigation into the state Department of Health and Human Services over the role the agency played in the Flint water crisis, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D–Flint) issued the following statement:

“I’m baffled as to how Governor Snyder can continue to push for investigations of departments that carried out his wishes, and then blame them for operating in a departmental culture he created.

“My community deserves to know how Governor Snyder’s decision, to only have part-time chief medical officers, impacted the department’s ability to properly read blood lead levels and identify Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks — both of which put Flint residents in harm’s way.”
