Well the governor is facing as she said, two counts. They're two misdemeanor counts, and that's Very much. The least important charges filed there a couple members of former senior State Health Department officials who are facing nine counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Many In Flint Question Whether They'll Get Justice For Water Crisis
"According to multiple media reports michigan's former governor and other officials will be charged in relation to the flint water crisis seven years ago despite possible criminal charges. A lot of residents still question. Whether those officials will be held accountable. Michigan radio steve carmody reports. Nearly seven years ago government leaders here push the button that switch the city of flint drinking water source from detroit's water system to the flint river flag. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster treated river water damage to pipes which then released lead and other contaminants into the city's drinking water eighteen months later. The water was switched back but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes while testifying about the flint water crisis before congress. Four years ago former governor. Rick snyder acknowledged mistakes. State and federal officials failed the families of flint. Snyder was not among the fifteen state and local government officials face criminal charges for their handling of the crisis half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time and in two thousand nineteen michigan's new attorney general dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over until yesterday when the associated press reported that several former government officials including former governor snyder. We'll be facing new charges. If that happens. Legal experts say it would be difficult case for prosecutors. Peter hammer teaches law at wayne state university in detroit. He says despite possible difficulty getting convictions. It's important to bring charges especially in an era where we're living where people are not being held accountable. This could be an important statement about the significance of the rule of law and that not even the highest public official in the state is going to get off. Scot-free a spokeswoman for former governor. Rick snyder calls the reports of impending charges a public relations smear campaign saying that if brought they would be meritless since during eighteen months of foul-smelling dirty tap water that made them sick flint residents have demanded justice and compensation a us district court. Judge is expected to decide in the coming days if she will give preliminary approval to a massive settlement agreement resolving most of the thousands of outstanding lawsuits last year. The state of michigan announced. It struck a deal with attorneys representing flint residents to pay six hundred million dollars into a settlement fund. A few months later the city of fled a local hospital and an engineering firm agreed to chip in another forty one million dollars. Nearly eighty percent of that money would be set aside for plaintiffs. who were young children or minors. During the crisis they are the ones most at risk for suffering long-term lead related health problems. But growing course of critics say it's not enough a group of flint. Civic and religious leaders led by pastor. John maclean gathered monday outside. The city's water plant to express concern about the settlement. We believe that the proposed settlement curly allocated is just as disrespectful as injury-cause by the water crisis tragedy itself in addition to tens of thousands of residents. There aren't the lawyers lots of them. More than one hundred forty took part in a zoom hearing with the judge last month. This is part of the challenge facing the judge how to divide a large pool of money without leaving some feeling victimized again. Flint's mayor says it's important. His residents have a belief in justice and developments. This week may help with that for npr news. I'm steve carmody in flint.
Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President
"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

"The guy Gordon show on news talk seven sixty WJR. We're not taking sides for in the middle of a labor dispute, but we have an interest for citizens because obviously our roads are critically important. And we have a lot of road projects that are currently under construction that are not making progress, and we have the winter coming. So we have a real concern about the safety of our citizens and their quality of life in terms of having these roads be available in some fashion. That's a disappointed. Governor Rick Snyder who had a meeting this morning with the operating engineers and the folks reminded the consortium of contractors who normally build an error this case rebuild our roads. There had been a great deal of hope that they could come up with some kind of an arrangement. So that they could go back to work complete the projects all while negotiating, and as you heard Rick Snyder there he was as frustrated as I'm sure you are that these projects are now stalled so let's find out if there's any any light at the end of the tunnel or if it's just a big orange. Wall. Jonathan hosting is was up at that hearing today that the get together between the two sides. There was so much optimism Jonathan when we talked to governor Snyder spokesperson last Friday. Jonathan there. Yeah. A guy we go. Sorry. We gotta get you popped up writer Jonathan. Yeah. So the governor had not personally met with both sides of this dispute until today, but it staff had last week. And there were there was optimism at that point that perhaps the deal is going to be reached. But by the end of the week. It's sort of fell apart Snyder came in today, and again was hoping for maybe not a long-term solution. But something more short-term to at least get them back to work before the winter season hits and the and the construction season, basically ends, and yeah, he broke it down very matter of factly that he was unable to do that he called the situation very challenging. And he said it's clear the parties aren't in agreement that there's no activity. That's immediately going to take place to get the roadwork going again, he's gonna keep trying, but no progress today, so I'm sure there's a lot of folks sitting in their cars right now on wet roads that are probably getting a little bit slippery. And they're in these half. Completed projects we could slide off saying what's so challenging Jonathan. We know that everything was working fine until MIDA said, no, we've got lock them out because we're not getting progress on this. Why don't they just plug it back in and and picked up where they left off is someone has cited that there's federal law there that could be problematic. Do we have a why? Well, yeah. I mean, the the why is just that. There's no contract right now between the contractors in the union. So there's no agreement for how much union workers are going to be getting paid to do this, work, etc. Under the old contract. Well, that's one idea that's been floated, but it's not something both sides have agreed to at this point. So in the meantime, you know, we've got the Snyder administration here trying to explore what steps they could take to force a resumption of roadwork. There is talk for instance, they've asked the attorney general's office to determine whether this actually is a labor dispute, and that's a that's a key phrase that the governor did use his own speech because if it's not considered a labor dispute if for instance, the contractors just without cause fired all their employees. The state could church could start charging these contractors significant penalties. If that happens, you can probably be sure that contractors are gonna try and rehire those union workers as quickly as possible to avoid big penalties. But there's a lot of legal issues at play and just definitions and because. Road. Funding involves a lot of federal dollars. Typically, there's federal rules that apply as well. And then of course, there's this idea that the governor is now floated last week and and again today of actually calling in the national guard to not necessarily finish the actual construction. But at least to get some of these sites in in shape for the winter. So that there are passable lanes and to at least minimize disruptions to traffic if these are to remain in a in a state of stasis over the winter, and when we talked to some of the governor's folks on Friday, again, they really kind of indicated that they thought that he had a breakthrough in a tentative agreement that these guys would go back. So I think this is kind of a shock that it came down the way it did. But there are by my count fifteen different engineering units within the national guard, which do bridge-building road-building and fifteen hundred equipment operators that could do something. But are they capable of operating the equipment that is necessary to? Finish or at least to safeguard these projects. Well, it sounds certainly like, you know, this new administration is confident in their ability now publicly they're not saying that they want on the national guard to come in. And replace the union workers. Just like they're not saying, this is not a labor dispute at this point. They're trying to walk a fine line and not frustrate one side of this impasse or the other. But, you know, the the idea is is out there and could limit as a threat for the union workers as well to say, you know, you might be replaced with the national guard troopers. So the governor is being very careful here not to upset anyone. But at some point, I imagine he's gonna wanna put his foot down. Well, in some point to we're going to have to have some kind of a legal ruling from attorney general Bill Schutte as well. And I'm sure we'll read about it in the Detroit News under your byline Jonathan thanks so much for being with us. All right. Thank you for having me. And again, you can read data from Jonathan's pizza from the land. Bureau. So what do you think about this?.
