Senator Jim Stamas, chairman of the Joint Select Committee on the Flint Water Emergency, on Wednesday announced the release of the committee’s report.

“After many months of work and discussions, I am pleased to release a bipartisan, bicameral report of the joint committee,” said Stamas, R-Midland. “The report contains more than 30 policy proposals based on testimony and a comprehensive review of materials presented to the committee.”

The Joint Select Committee on the Flint Water Emergency met six times and took more than 18 hours of testimony from more than 60 participants. In addition to hearings in Lansing, the committee traveled to Flint to hear from residents affected by the water crisis.

The committee heard from officials from the Office of the Auditor General; members of the Flint Water Advisory Task Force; the directors of the Department of Environmental Quality and Department of Health and Human Services; representatives of the Genesee County Health Department, Flint Water Treatment Plant and Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association; and various government officials and residents from Flint.
