GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Gov. Rick Snyder is calling for an immediate investigation into the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services by the state's Auditor General and the DHHS Inspector General.

"The public health issues the people of Flint and Genesee County are facing warranted an internal review of how the state handled these situations," Snyder said. "That preliminary internal review warrants an immediate and thorough investigation. I want some answers." 

The investigation will look at the way the department handled public health issues related to elevated lead levels in blood tests in Flint, as well as the uptick in cases of Legionnaire's disease in Genesee County.

The governor's office said the results of the full investigation will be shared in full with the public.
