Michigan Governor Rick Snyder promised to increase transparency during his State of the State address--and today, he releases his Flint-related emails.

In his speech, Snyder first addressed the issue that's caught the attention of people across the globe: the Flint water crisis.

Near the capitol building, protestors rallied against the governor and his attempts at remedying the huge problem.

The governor promised a long-term solution that includes working with the Michigan National Guard to insure every resident affected gets help.

So far, three class action lawsuits have been filed on behalf of the people of Flint calling for more action.

Today, the governor is expected to release emails regarding the Flint water crisis from 2014 and 2015.
