Michigan's attorney general has won preliminary approval to spend $3.4 million more to investigate Flint's water crisis, which would more than triple overall spending on the probe.

The request was endorsed 3-0 by a State Administrative Board committee. The full board will meet July 12 to consider the contract change.

Attorney General Bill Schuette hired lawyer Todd Flood and 21 other outside attorneys and investigators for the probe.
