Lead Rule Changes Complicated, But On Way, Zimmer Says

Snyder Cabinet Director Mike Zimmer told Gongwer News Service he is working on multiple draft bills related to the Lead and Copper Rule proposed by the Flint Water Interagency Coordinating Committee and Governor Rick Snyder months ago, and he is not ruling out this year for their introduction.

A critical recommendation made in March by Mr. Snyder's Flint Water Advisory Task Force in the wake of the Flint water crisis was for Michigan to consider creating its own Lead and Copper Rule that would ensure health and safety better than the federal Lead and Copper Rule created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (which is also currently under revision).
