FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Gov. Rick Snyder visited a Mid-Michigan community college on Monday to focus on its technological advancements.

However, questions regarding the Flint water crisis and pipe replacement took center stage at Mott Community College.

"We provided the resources some time ago and the city is out with its request for proposals so I think they're due back June 16," Snyder said. "So hopefully they'll get good proposals and they can start moving forward."

Snyder said the Flint water crisis is a top priority for the state, but so is rescuing the Detroit Public Schools.

"If you look at last year's budget, we're going through to finalize that hopefully in the next week or two, but we're able to find sufficient resources for Flint, for DPS and for the state. That shows how robust our state economy is," Snyder said.

The EPA requested the Flint Water treatment Plant has new equipment installed.

"I think the city and the state want to work well with the EPA and they're working hard on fulfilling those requests," Snyder said.

He also said he still has Flint water at home and he stills drinks it.
