Flint officials want more of a say in the state’s investment priorities in their city.
It’s been nearly a year since a state of emergency was declared in Flint because of lead contaminated drinking water.

But Flint leaders question the state’s spending priorities.
“People have seen us do a ribbon cutting at the Capitol Theater but we still don’t have a grocery store,” says Mayor Karen Weaver.
