Snyder, Earley expected to testify before Congress

Snyder1Governor Rick Snyder is among the witnesses expected to testify next month before a congressional committee looking into the Flint water crisis.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is planning to hold a second hearing on Capitol Hill regarding the Flint water crisis.

Snyder Press Secretary Dave Murray says the governor asked for the chance to testify.

“The people of Flint have suffered because they’ve been failed by all levels of government. It’s understandable there are questions of all levels of government,” said Murray.

Murray says the governor will use the opportunity to call for a national conversation on infrastructure.

Former Flint emergency manager Darnell Earley, and EPA administrator Gina McCarthy are also on the list of witnesses to be called before the committee.
