Earlier today Attorney General Bill Schuette called for an investigation into the Flint water crisis. Just three weeks ago, however, Schuette had declined to take any action when asked by a Flint representative to do so.
Today, Schuette's office said that they will look to see if any Michigan laws were broken. Schuette described the Flint water crisis as a "human tragedy."
On December 22, 2015 the Attorney General's Office sent a response to Neeley. In a response to Neeley, Rusty Hills, the Senior Advisor from the Executive Division, told Neeley, "As the Attorney General explained, given the multiple reviews by federal and state agencies, and the pending and potential federal court actions, we do not believe it necessary to conduct an additional investigation."
NBC25 News has reached out to he Attorney General's Office and asked what changed between December 22 of last year and now.
Schuette's office tells NBC25 that they have no comment.
