It’s been over three years since we found out the people of Flint were being poisoned by their drinking water. How is Flint doing now, and what happens next? And how are other Michigan cities doing after numerous crises — public health, financial, and otherwise. Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson speaks with Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence (D-Southfield) about the challenges facing Michigan cities like Flint, Detroit, and her hometown of Southfield.
Maine's members of Congress are urging President Donald Trump's administration not to place tariffs on seafood imports from China because they fear such a move would jeopardize the state's valuable lobster industry. Maine's Congressional delegation of independent Sen. Angus King, Republican Sen. Susan Collins, Democratic Rep. Chellie Pingree and Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin sent a letter to Trump on the subject Thursday. The lawmakers said they are concerned the Chinese would retaliate with a similar tariff on U.S. seafood exports.
On April 25, 2014, the city of Flint, Mich., suffered one of the greatest tragedies in our nation’s history. With a declining economy and a growing deficit, Flint began using the Flint River, a waterway with severely dangerous lead levels and contamination, as a water source to lower state costs. Twelve people have died, many have become ill, and unfortunately, hardworking American families have had to suffer. Flint residents did not cause this man-made catastrophe, but are the ones being punished.
Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence (MI-14), Member of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee demands a vote on a subpoena for documents on Flint Water Crisis including critical documents form Gov. Snyder. There is a continued need to fully investigate the events that lead to the Flint Water Crisis and we need to know what happened, so that we can prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again.
