Efforts are underway in Flint, Michigan, to help reclaim money for residents who have had to pay for poisoned water.

FOX's Jeff Monosso has more:

A Michigan legislative committee signs off on $30-million spending plan to cover some of water bills of Flint residents, who've not used it since it became contaminated with lead after switching from Detroit water to corrosive Flint River water two years ago.

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is also pushing $165-million in additional spending for lead pipe replacement, bottled water, and health care services.

This as Michigan also considers new water testing rules for how large facilities like hospitals manage their water systems and amid investigations and class action lawsuits into Flint's water crisis.
