What happened to Flint wasn't an anomaly. It was a warning to other communities across America. We must get serious about improving America’s aging water infrastructure and make significant improvements in communities like Flint so that this never happens again.
In Congress, I worked to establish the Flint Registry to provide Flint families access to critical resources and help mitigate the health impacts of lead. In 2016, I secured $170 million to help remove and replace lead pipes in Flint. And now I’m working with President Biden to remove 100 percent of America’s lead pipes, to ensure clean drinking water and create good-paying infrastructure jobs.
Government has to make it right.
