NAACP wants review of Emergency Manager Law

Posted at 10:29 AM, Mar 24, 2016

The Flint chapter of the NAACP doesn't just want the Emergency Manager Law reviewed. It wants the law repealed.

During a protest at the state capitol the chapter president, Frances Gilcreast said the law is the biggest reason for the crisis.

"When you take money and put it over the lives of the citizens in a democratic society, that's when you're gonna run into issues, when you circumvent the democratic process. So that's what's to blame, the EFM law."

The group also wants a better explanation of who's in charge of what in Flint.

The NAACP says Governor Snyder did not meet its request to have a timeline, deadline, and cost estimate set within thirty days.
