WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 19, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s establishment of the Flint Safe Drinking Water Task Force:
“I met today with several community leaders and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the courageous physician who conducted the study showing how Flint’s current water system has been harming children through lead exposure. I share the deep concerns of families in Flint for the long-term health of their children and I will continue to do everything I can to help.
“The EPA is taking an important step forward today to provide assistance to the State and the local governments involved as they make critical short-term and long-term decisions for the families of Flint. This current situation is completely unacceptable and everything that is necessary must be done for the health and safety of the community.”
