FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee spoke at the White House Water Summit.

Kildee talked about the crisis in Flint and the need to invest in America's aging infrastructure.

He also said the state's obsession with saving money caused the Flint water crisis.

"Is that the cost of the solving this problem, dealing with the crisis and the aftermath of the crisis is astronomically higher than the costs associated with preventing it in the first place," Kildee said.

Kildee said congress needs to step-up and pay their fair share in fixing the water crisis.
