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.
