Snyder to give State of the State with heavy focus on Flint

LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – On Tuesday evening, Governor Rick Snyder will deliver his State of the State Address.

Many people will be watching just to hear what he has to say about the water crisis in Flint.

Snyder’s detractors have called for everything from his resignation to criminal charges.

He’s expected to outline new plans, measures and requests during the address and spend the majority of his speech focusing on Flint.

That’s according to our media partners at MLive who reported the governor will ask for more measures by the state legislature to provide the people of Flint with clean water and medical treatment for those who’ve been affected.

Additionally, Snyder is expected to address city officials, asking them to stop shutting off water service to people who don’t pay their bills.

The state has a budget surplus of more than $500 million, part of which could be used for these measures.

Other topics of his speech may include the Detroit school system and the state’s energy policy.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
