While the nature of the charges are unknown, charges were brought against former governor Rick Snyder, a Republican, Nick Lyon, former health department director, and other officials in his administration.
Over 12,000 lead or galvanized steel pipes that could potentially bring lead-contaminated water are still in use.
Still, no criminal charges have been filed against the governor at this time.
Meanwhile, three years after the Flint water crisis began, pipes still have not been fixed and water is still considered unsafe to drink.
Sign the petition to stop Flint residents from being charged for contaminated water.
It is unknown who will be called to testify at the hearing, or why the Governor of the State, whose administration and appointees were responsible for the decisions that led to the public being forced to drink and bathe in contaminated water for so long, isn’t being called to the hearing.
If you want to help Flint, sign the petition, demand that the federal government take action and then get involved yourself, wherever you live, so that this doesn’t happen to you—and so that the people we elect know they can no longer break the law as they rule by fiat or indifference.
