This morning, state lawmakers will resume their hearings into Flint’s water crisis.

State Senator Jim Stamas, R-Midland, chairs the special joint committee looking into what happened to Flint’s water.

He toured Flint’s water plant Monday and met with city residents.

Sen. Stamas says improving communication between state and local governments, as well as Flint residents, is much needed.

“We continue to hear different individuals having different stories. We’re hearing different things from the community,” says Stamas. 

Today’s hearing will focus on a state auditor’s report.  

Next week, the committee plans to hold a hearing in Flint.

Stamas says several city and county officials have been invited to testify. He says the public will also have a chance to comment.
