Gov. Rick Snyder and EPA chief Gina McCarthy were grilled by members of Congress over the Flint water crisis yesterday. Rick Pluta of the Michigan Public Radio Network reports.

Someone should resign. That was the message delivered Thursday by members of a congressional oversight panel looking into the drinking water crisis in Flint.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder testified, along with EPA chief Gina McCarthy.

While there seemed to be general agreement that someone should lose their job, the Michigan Public Radio Network’s Rick Pluta says Republicans and Democrats disagreed on just who that should be.
