Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said Friday federal aid isn’t needed in Flint, Michigan, where lead-contaminated pipes have resulted in an ongoing public health crisis.

Lee said he is blocking a bipartisan bill to address the water crisis in Flint because Michigan’s Gov. Rick Snyder has not asked for federal help and the state doesn’t need it.

“Michigan has an enormous budget surplus this year” and a rainy-day fund totaling several hundred million dollars, Lee said. The state has approved $70 million in emergency funding for Flint, and Snyder has requested at least $165 million more toward the Flint emergency.
