SENATOR STABENOW: THANK YOU. RESERVING THE RIGHT TO OBJECT, I FIRST
WANT TO AGAIN THANK THE CHAIR. SHE LISTS A LOT OF BIPARTISAN
EFFORTS THAT HAVE GONE ON. I KNOW A LOT OF WORK. NOWHERE IN
THAT LIST OF FOLKS WHOSE NEEDS HAVE BEEN -- WHOSE NEEDS HAVE
BEEN ADDRESSED ARE THE CHILDREN OF FLINT.
STABENOW: WE WANT TO GET THIS SOLVED, NOT JUST HAVE VOTES
THAT GO DOWN. I OBJECT.
