Breaking: Report finds ‘environmental injustice’ in Flint water crisis; poor, majority-black population given inferior protection
State government is primarily responsible for the Flint water crisis, and state officials – including the governor – should stop implying that federal and Flint city officials are equally to blame.
That’s one of the findings in the blunt final report released today by the Flint Water Advisory Task Force, appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder to investigate the causes of the crisis that led to the lead poisoning of a Michigan city, and to make recommendations to assure that it never happens again.
Bridge Magazine will be providing more analysis of the report soon. For now, read the full report, embedded below.
