"Week Ahead: Key Flint Figures Come To Congress"

"In a pair of hearings at the House Oversight Committee, top officials involved in the Flint, Mich., drinking water crisis are slated to discuss the causes and aftermath of the lead contamination.

Following a hearing last month that only featured some secondary figures to the crisis, the panel is scheduled to meet Tuesday and Thursday to hear from major players in the crisis.

The Thursday event will be the bigger of the two, with Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Gina McCarthy set to testify. ...

The Tuesday session is scheduled to feature Susan Hedman, who was the EPA's regional manager for the area that includes Flint before resigning in January due to the crisis; former Flint emergency manager Darnell Earley; former Flint Mayor Dayne Walling; and Virginia Tech engineering professor Marc Edwards, who did much of the early work researching Flint's water quality after the switch."
