Rick Snyder

(The Detroit Free Press) - Governor Rick Snyder could have declared a state of emergency in Flint up to three months earlier. That’s according to Snyder’s e-mails on the Flint water crisis that were released over the weekend. The Detroit Free Press says Snyder was encouraged to declare an emergency in November by a Michigan State Police emergency management expert. But Snyder didn’t do that until January. A spokesman for Snyder says the governor waited to declare and emergency in Flint because the gravity of the situation wasn’t immediately clear.
