LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Governor Gretchen Whitmer has issued her first executive directive as Michigan’s governor.
It requires state department employees to report threats to public health, safety or welfare up the chain of command, and it requires those threats to be investigated.
Governor Whitmer signed the directive while flanked by employees of the Department of Environmental Quality. That’s a department that has faced reports of low morale and that came under the microscope in the wake of the Flint water crisis.
Whitmer says it isn’t about just one department.
