PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A $500,000 fund has been proposed by some members of the Oakland County Board of Commissioners that would reimburse for water testing at schools and child care facilities.

The proposal from Democrats on the board would reimburse child care facilities and school districts that do testing for lead and copper. The Detroit News (https://detne.ws/1U3BhmX ) reported Thursday that the proposal comes amid Flint’s crisis with lead-tainted water.

The proposal in Oakland County has been submitted for review to a committee.
