Michigan-Wide Water Standards

Recently, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer called for a state-wide standard in water-quality. As stated in this article, Whitmer does not want to wait for the federal government to come out with a nation-wide standard. In an interview last week, Whitmer stated "we have had too many problems in this state with water, and I will not see it continue to happen." For those unfamiliar, Whitmer was referring to the horrific things that happened in Flint, Michigan, wiping out water across the city because of lead posioning.

There are many places in the world that do not have safe water, and it almost seems inhumane to not be able to have life's most crucial substance. Do you agree that the state of Michigan should instruct a policy that must abide by a standard of water-quality? Could this policy potentially be costly? Why do you think they have not enacted a policy already? I would love to hear your opinons.
