DETROIT, MI -- Democrats in Congress on Thursday introduced a bill seeking to hinder emergency management policies that give far-reaching power over local governments to state appointees.
U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, introduced the bill with support from 30 other Democrats, including Michigan Reps. Dan Kildee, D-Flint Twp., and Brenda Lawrence, D-Southfield.
Washington — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and federal Environmental Protection Agency head Gina McCarthy faced scathing criticism and calls to resign Thursday during a combative congressional hearing on the Flint water contamination crisis.
Democrats on the U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee concentrated their fire on Snyder, who acknowledged state failures. The GOP governor told lawmakers that “career bureaucrats” lacked common sense when they didn’t require corrosion control chemicals in Flint water.
Congresswoman Brenda L. Lawrence (MI-14) recently discussed the Flint water crisis and environmental injustice throughout the nation on The Bill Press Show.
