Governor Rick Snyder is defending a move by a board he appointed to oversee Flint.
The Receivership Transition Advisory Board (RTAB) has come under fire for revoking Flint’s ability to sue the state.
The five-member board was created at the end of April 2015, after Flint was taken out of emergency management, and is supposed to monitor the city.
Flint Mayor Karen Weaver filed a notice of intent to sue the state over the Flint water crisis back in March. She says she did not intend to sue the state at that point, but needed to file the notice to keep the ability.
