Finally Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has charged five individuals with manslaughter related to the Flint water crisis and failure to rectify the situation.
Michigan’s State Rep. Dan Kildee released a statement in regard to the notices of tax liens sent to Flint residents who have failed to pay their water bills:
“Flint families should not have to pay for water that they still cannot drink, and they certainly should not lose their homes over this ongoing water crisis that was caused by the callous decisions of state government. It is unfortunate that Governor Snyder ended water credits for Flint families. I opposed this decision because Flint families deserve support from the state until there is confidence in the water system again.”
Thus far Flint has received $3 million from residents that have paid their water bills to avoid evictions and tan liens. They stand to make another $6 million off of tax liens, if they are paid.
