Investigation into Michigan health department's role in Flint water crisis extended
FLINT, MI — It will take several more weeks before an investigation into the actions of the state Department of Health and Human Services in the Flint water crisis is completed.
Auditor General Doug Ringler and Alan Kimichik, inspector general for DHHS, told Gov. Rick Snyder of the new timeline in a letter obtained Wednesday by MLive-The Flint Journal.
"Due to the magnitude of this investigation, a final report will not be available by May 16. Also, in order to maintain the integrity of the ongoing investigation, we are unable to release any preliminary findings at this time," the letter says.
The update comes days before the investigators told Snyder they would report back to him after the governor requested the DHHS probe on March 11.
