MI Senator Stabenow wants recess canceled for Flint

According to the Washington Examiner, US Senator from Michigan Debbie Stabenow urged the Senate not to take its scheduled recess next week to stay in the Capitol and pass funding for Flint, Mich.

The city of 100,000 people in eastern Michigan has been affected by a drinking water crisis for more than two years due to lead contamination brought on by a switch in water sources. Stabenow, a Democrat, said the Senate should not leave town until something is done.

“We should have acted sooner in the United States Senate and sent a bill to the House so that we could help Flint rebuild their water system,” she said.
