FLINT—Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus, issued the following statement today on the Flint water crisis civil settlement:
“There will never be an amount of money that adequately recognizes the harm done to Flint families, but this settlement is an acknowledgment of the massive failures during this man-made crisis. Ultimately, justice for Flint families will take many forms. Justice comes by holding those state officials accountable for what they did to Flint. Justice also comes by making sure families have access to critical resources, like the Flint Registry and other health care, educational and nutritional services, that can continue to help mitigate the effects of lead exposure.
“Flint families deserve our continued support, and we owe it to other communities to learn the lessons of this crisis so it never happens elsewhere.”
