Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich on Senate Approval of $100M in EPA Funding for Flint

LANSING, Mich. — Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D–Flint) issued the following statement after the Senate voted to approve a $100 million emergency EPA grant for Flint to fund infrastructure upgrades that resulted from lead-contaminated, water damaged service lines:

“It’s been three years since Flint residents had safe, clean, drinking water, but I’m grateful that federal funding has been secured for my community. I’m thankful to Senators Peters and Stabenow, and Congressman Kildee, for advancing this needed, financial help. We can now begin the next phase of replacing each and every lead-tainted pipe in our city, so that one day Flint residents can safely drink the water from their tap.”
