Governor Rick Snyder has increased his legal defense budget for one of his private attorneys to $3.5 million dollars.
Snyder hired Warner, Norcross & Judd LLP last spring to represent him in the investigations into the Flint water crisis.
The contract for their firm at the time was for 249-thousand dollars. Over time, that cap rose to 2 million dollars before its most recent increase.
Spokesperson for Governor Snyder, Anna Heaton, said as long as the Attorney General’s investigation is ongoing, there is legal work to be done.
