“This transaction agreement is just one of many ways we will continue to show our support for the city and the people of Flint,” Whitmer said in a press release. “The details of the proposal that have been submitted to the judge are a great step forward, and we are determined to help the people of Flint participate in this process, as we are all united in finding a better future worthy of Flint.” “Reducing the burden on the people of Flint and resolving these lengthy legal proceedings has been a top priority for me since I took office,” Nessel said. “The people of Flint have endured more than most of them, and pulling the legal back-and-forth even longer would have gotten nothing but lingering distress. This colony focuses on the children and future of Flint, and the state will do everything in its power to take it forward in the healing process of one of Michigan`s most resilient cities. At the end of the day, I hope that with this agreement we can begin the process of closing one of the most difficult chapters in our state`s history and writing a new chapter beginning with a government that works on behalf of all citizens. Additional details on compensation, including compensation categories, eligibility criteria, the claims process and more, will be made available online when settlement documents are completed. The portion of Flint`s transaction is $20 million, which is paid for by its insurer and requires city council approval, Nessel`s office said in a press release. McLaren provides US$20 million and Rowe Professional Services Co. $1.25 million. “We hope that this agreement with the State of Michigan can begin the process of closing one of the most difficult chapters in the state`s history and provide some relief to the people of Flint, who have suffered greatly. This colony focuses on the children and the future of Flint. Our team will continue to fight on behalf of the people of Flint against the water technology company Veolia and will not stop as long as this multinational offers compensation for all those who have suffered,” said Hunter Shkolnik, court named Co-Liaison Counsel and associated with Napoli Shkolnik Following the complaint, the court has set up a third independent monitoring program to carry out lead water tests in an additional 100 homes Flint.

Former and current state officials and Flint were charged with water emergency crimes before their cases were resolved through dismissals or pleadings. McLaren was charged, but previously denied responsibility for the outbreaks of Legionnaires` disease that emerged during the water crisis, and Rowe was an engineer in the city of Flint from July 2002 to June 30, 2016, according to court documents.
