Dems call on Snyder to push transparency measures ahead of State of the State

Gov Rick SnyderFlint’s water crisis is expected to be the focus of Governor Rick Snyder’s State of the State speech tonight.

Snyder will likely outline the next phase of his administration’s response to the crisis.

Michigan Democrats are calling for him to also back transparency measures that would – among other things – subject his office and lawmakers to public information requests.

“To clean up state government, and get to the bottom of the Flint water debacle and the other scandals plaguing this Republican-led government,” said Brandon Dillon.

Dillon chairs the Michigan Democratic Party. He’s also calling on the governor to release his e-mails related to Flint’s water crisis.
