FLINT, Mich. — Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D–Flint) issued the following statement on the announcement of a $600 million settlement in the Flint water crisis lawsuit:
“This settlement represents a meaningful step toward justice for the people of Flint. More important than the money is the acknowledgment that our people – our children – have been permanently harmed by the deliberate negligence of those who were supposed to serve us. The settlement is welcome news, but I have said from the very beginning that the demand for justice will not be satisfied until every person who had a hand in poisoning my city be held legally accountable, regardless of political position or power.”
