The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality sued the City of Flint this week. The state says the city council'srefusal to approve a long term deal to buy water from a Detroit-area system endangers a public already troubled bya lead-tainted water crisis. This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss the lawsuit filed by the state agency that's been blamed for much of Flint's water crisis.

They also talk about a new contender in the race to unseat US Senator Debbie Stabenow in 2018, state Attorney General Bill Schuette's call to shut down Enbridge's Line 5 pipeline, and a new study that has some advice for Michigan from states where recreational marijuana has been legalized.

Rebecca Kruth is the host of All Things Considered at Michigan Public. She also co-hosts Michigan Public's weekly language podcast That’s What They Say with English professor Anne Curzan.
