Meetings On Flint Committee Report Scarce, Ananich Says

When the joint legislative committee on the Flint water crisis concluded its meetings in May, it was with the expectation that a report on legislative findings and proposals would follow soon after. But little has happened on that front since, one source said Wednesday.

"We had a lot of conversations earlier (in the summer)," Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) told Gongwer News Service in an interview. "I suggested staff meet over the summer and have conversations, and that hasn't happened much."
