Congress is moving forward with millions of dollars for the Flint water crisis.
The House approved $170 million to help Flint replace pipes and deal with health issues tied to the city’s lead-tainted tap water.
The money is part of the Water Resources Development Act, which includes funds for many infrastructure projects across the U.S.
But it’s Flint’s ongoing drinking water crisis that drew the most attention to the legislation.
“Flint needs action,” says Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, “this bi-partisan legislation delivers that.”
