Harvey Hollins

FLINT, MI (AP)--   An urban affairs adviser to Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says the governor asked the health department for more information when he informed him in 2015 about a Legionnaires' disease outbreak in the Flint area. 

Harvey Hollins testified in court Wednesday during a hearing that will determine whether Snyder's health director, Nick Lyon, will face trial on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Lyon is accused of committing a crime by failing to timely inform the public about the Legionnaires' outbreak during Flint's lead-tainted water crisis.

DETROIT, MI (AP)--   Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is sticking by his congressional testimony about when he learned about a fatal outbreak of Legionnaires' disease during the Flint water crisis, despite a senior aide's new disclosure that he informed the governor weeks earlier.

Spokesman Ari Adler says Snyder was "under oath" and "stands by his testimony."

Nearly 100 Legionnaires' cases, including 12 deaths, were reported in the Flint area when the city was using the Flint River for water in 2014-15.

FLINT, MI (AP)--   A state official is contradicting Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder about when the governor learned about a Flint area Legionnaires' disease outbreak.

Harvey Hollins, who was coordinating the state's response to the Flint water crisis, says he told Snyder by phone in December 2015. But the governor has repeatedly said he didn't know until the next month when he announced the outbreak.

Snyder's office declined to comment Friday.
