State Democrats Asking For Additional Documents Related to Flint Water Crisis

An update on the flint water crisis.

State democrats want more disclosure from lawmakers.

This push follows thousands of e-mails voluntarily released by the governor’s office.

They show aides discussed switching the water supply back to Detroit.

The email exchange is dated six months after Flint started using its own river for drinking water.

Democrats say they now want to see text messages, memos and other documents as well.

They are trying to change a state law that shields the governor and legislature from releasing public records.
