During his State of the State address Tuesday, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) said he would release emails from 2014 and 2015 related to the Flint water crisis, and on Wednesday, more than 270 pages of emails and notices were posted on his website.

The first email in the batch is almost entirely redacted, and House Minority Leader Tim Greimel (D-Auburn Hills) told the Detroit Free Press he was disappointed that Snyder only released his own emails, and not Flint-related emails from other officials. "It's very disappointing to see the governor play these types of games," he said.
