Congress asks Snyder to address Legionnaires' testimony

A hole reveals some copper and some lead service lines in on Welch Boulevard in Flint. in this Flint Journal file

Snyder testified that he he learned about the Legionnaires' disease outbreaks one day before he made the health issue public at a January 13, 2016, news conference.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee wrote Snyder earlier Thursday asking him about published reports that one of his aides, Harvey Hollins, testified in a court hearing last week in MI that he had notified Snyder of an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease linked to the Flint water crisis in December 2015, rather than 2016 as Snyder had testified.

Hollins, director of the state's Office of Urban and Metropolitan Initiatives, contradicted that timeline when he testified under oath in a preliminary examination in the criminal case against another state official - Nick Lyon - last week. By then, Flint was suffering through a health crisis after the city switched its drinking water source as a cost-savings measure.

Hollins testified that he told Snyder about Legionnaires' problems in December 2015, weeks before the governor has said he was first made aware of the outbreak.

Gov. Rick Snyder has quickly answered a congressional committee that questioned his sworn remarks about the Flint water crisis, saying his testimony was truthful, "and I stand by it".

Cummings said last week that he is "deeply concerned the governor may have misled the Oversight Committee and the people of Flint", given the discrepancy between the two testimonies. They asked him to provide by October 25 "any additional relevant information" about the date when he learned of Legionnaires'.

"I am pleased that the Oversight Committee has taken swift action to look into the Governor's conflicting statements".

Last week, prosecutors in MI said Dr. Eden Wells, the state's chief medical executive who already faced lesser charges, would become the sixth current or former official to face involuntary manslaughter charges in connection with the crisis.
