Michigan Campaign Finance Network Director Rich Robinson calls legislation just before the end last year’s session “classic terrible legislating.”


(MPRN-Lansing) Gov. Rick Snyder is asking the Obama Administration to change its mind and declare a major disaster in Flint. 


State Representative Jon Hoadley says Governor Rick Snyder’s State of the State Address spelled out some first steps for getting clean drinking water to Flint, but the Kalamazoo Democrat says the governor’s speech didn’t get to the fundamental cause of the crisis. 


State Representative Aric Nesbitt says a lot of people want to “play the blame game,” but the Lawton Republican says “it’s also about finding solutions, and making sure that the residents of Flint have clean water.”
