When the citizens of Flint went into a state of emergency due to lead-contaminated water, Texas National Gaurd members collected, donated and drove 5 tons of clean water to Michigan.

The next two-year Ohio budget is being proposed with a controversial new amendment that would give sole authority to the Ohio Health Department in overseeing the reduction of lead use.
