Michigan Governor Rick Snyder will address the people of Michigan tonight during his State of the State address.

And it's expected that the Flint water crisis will take center stage.

We're told Snyder will ask lawmakers to help him in navigating the problem. A problem many believe he created in an attempt to save millions.

We’ve learned protestors are expected to make their presence known in Lansing ahead of the address.

Michigan residents could also hear more about the governor’s plans to improve Detroit Public Schools.

It's a subject that the 7 Action News team continues to cover, shedding light on the issues that students, teachers and parents are facing.

Many of the buildings aren’t up to code. Mold, lack of clean buildings and low pay for teachers and staff are just some of the issues plaguing the district.

Governor Snyder's State of the State will be at 7 p.m. tonight.
