Governor Snyder on Flint water charges: “These are deeply troubling”

(AP/WLNS) – Governor Rick Snyder held a news conference Wednesday where he commented on the Flint water crisis charges announced by Attorney General Bill Schuette.

In response to the charges against three state employees, Governor Snyder said: “let me start by saying these are deeply troubling and serious.”

State Attorney General Bill Schuette charged Stephen Busch and Michael Prysby, who both work at the state Department of Environmental Quality, with several things, including misdemeanor violations of Michigan’s safe drinking water law.

Flint utilities administrator Michael Glasgow is charged with tampering with evidence for changing lead water-testing results and willful neglect of duty as a public servant.

Governor Snyder said he hopes the findings of this investigation and the charges do not taint the reputation of thousands of state employees.
