Michigan House Votes To Send Flint $100M

The Michigan House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to send $100 million in federal funds to Flint in order to address its ongoing water crisis. The state has dedicated $234 million at efforts to help the city recover since the crisis began. According to the House Fiscal Agency, the new funding will go towards water treatment plant improvements, service line and water meter replacements, distribution system upgrades, corrosion control and other infrastructure needs. It's unclear how many residents in Flint were exposed to the contaminated water.
