Gov. Snyder to testify on Flint water crisis in March

Gov. Rick Snyder speaks about the Flint water crisis during a press conference on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016, at City Hall in downtown, Flint, Mich.

LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Gov. Rick Snyder will testify in Washington D.C. about Flint’s water crisis in March.

Snyder is scheduled to testify before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on March 17.

Earlier this month, Snyder asked for the chance to testify before Congress and they agreed.

Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy is also scheduled to testify on the same day as Snyder.

U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who is the chairman of the committee, said he appreciated Snyder’s willingness to appear before the committee and looked forward to testimony from McCarthy.

The U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform already held a hearing on Feb. 3, which Snyder said he was not invited to.
