The Michigan State Police wrapped up an investigation into what happened at the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality during the Flint water crisis more than a month ago. But Gov. Rick Snyder says he hasn’t seen the final report.

According to a state police spokeswoman, on Jan. 24, 2016, MDEQ Director Keith Creagh requested assistance from the MSP with conducting an internal, administrative investigation of MDEQ employees for violations of DEQ policies and work rules.

An investigator from MSP’s Professional Standards Section assisted DEQ’s human resources staff.

MDEQ officials received the final report March 26.  

Snyder says he’d like to know what’s in the final report, but he has not received a copy.

“Eventually, all of us want to know what’s in the report,” Snyder told reporters in Flint today. “I should think people would all want to know what’s in the report in terms of are there real issues.”

There's no word on whether that internal report will be made public. 

Two former MDEQ officials are facing criminal charges for their roles in the Flint water crisis.
