levels had doubled. lee ann walters started noticing physical and developmental delays in her kid. >> we were told by the state nurse, "it's just a few i.q. points. it's not the end of the world." >> dr. mona hanna-attica led the study on children. when you first saw the results of your study... >> right. >> reporter: what went through your mind? >> i think my jaw just dropped. how could we do this? and what was most disturbing was that it was entirely preventible. >> reporter: five days after her study was released, governor rick snyder, for the first time, said publicly, "it appears that lead levels could be higher or have increased." a week later, he called for flint to go back to detroit's water system. in december, the governor's task force blasted the state department of environmental quality, which oversees water. the task force said that complaints by flint residents were met by, "aggressive dismissal, belittlement, and
individuals involved." today, the governor asked state legislators for $28.5 million to pay for water bottles, upgrades to school plumbing, and even a school psychologist to help with scott, he'll outline that proposal tonight. >> pelley: adriana diaz at the state capitol. adriana, thank you. lead poisoning is especially harmful to children, and it is irreversible. dr. jon lapook has more on this. >> reporter: the parents of children in flint, michigan have good reason to be worried. >> there's real danger that the injury is going to be permanent and lifelong in them. >> reporter: dr. philip landrigan is dean of global health at mount sinai school of medicine. he's been studying the effects of lead since the '70s. >> the problem here is that no level of lead is safe. even low levels of lead, especially if exposure to low levels continues over many months, is going to cause some degree of brain damage to at
deal. >> reporter: exposed children are at risk for a number of problems, including lower i.q. scores, developmental delays, and behavioral issues such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. even after lead exposure stops, the effects can last for years, or even be permanent. in flint, michigan, a major challenge will be identifying which children are at risk, then tracking them for many years for evidence of injury. >> these children are going to be injured for life. they're going to need remedial education. they're going to need educational enrichment programs. they're kids who may be prevented from functioning at their full level. >> reporter: there are no known effective drugs to reverse the developmental damage caused by lead. something called "chelation therapy" can remove lead from the body, but so far it has not been helpful in treating the behavioral or neurological problems caused by lead. >> pelley: dr. jon lapook. thank you, doc.

very significant storm up and down the east coast. we're watching the energy that has just come ashore in the western united states, produce something rain and snow here. and it will travel across the country over these next few days. and by friday we'll be watching snow developing across part of the mid-south, perhaps as far south as alabama and georgia and then the storm starts to wind up off the mid-atlantic coast, peaking on saturday. bands of heavy snow up and down the eastern seaboard and stretching up towards southern new england, and then very slowly moving its way eastward and out to sea. it will be a long-duration event, friday into saturday, and sunday for the eastern corridor. now, here in blue, this is the highest impact zone when it comes to snow totals, including the philly area, d.c. suburbs, also into virginia. we'll get a better idea of the totals by tomorrow but it looks like isolated amounts could be over two feet. the other thing to take into consideration here, we have a full moon saturday, high tides, strong onshore winds. so, scott, we could see coastal surge here comparable to some tropical systems so anyone near the coast needs to watch the storm very closely.
this very closely. today, the united states supreme court said it will rule on a showdown between president obama and congress. in 2014, mr. obama bypassed congress and issued executive actions that would shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation, such as the parents of children born in the united states. the court will decide by summer whether the president overstepped his power. the americans freed in a prisoner swap with iran have not stopped smiling. today, the "washington post" released video of reporter jason rezaian sharing laughs over an internet video. and former u.s. marine amir hekmati shared his thoughts on being freed. he had been arrested on espionage charges while visiting his family in iran. liz palmer is at the u.s. military hospital in landstuhl, germany, where the former prisoners are being treated. >> reporter: meeting reporters, amir hekmati looked relaxed and

words, inhumane and unjust. >> i didn't want to let my marines, fellow marines down, and the reputation of the marine corps, so i tried my best to, you know, keep my head up. >> reporter: scott, amir hekmati knew he could rely on support from within the military, but he was thrilled and also a little humbled when he discovered how many other people from across had lobbied to help set him free. germany for us tonight. thanks, liz. match fixing will not be tolerated, at the year's first grand slam tennis tournament in australia. officials made that unusual vow after an investigation was made public that said over the years, some players had thrown matches at the behest of gamblers. don dahler is following this. >> reporter: as the australian open began, talk was about a
eight unidentified players competing there are on the list of suspects who allegedly threw matches. that list was compiled by an investigative unit within the association of tennis professionals and leaked to the bbc, and buzzfeed. the a.t.p. acknowledges their investigation has discovered rigged matches going back years. but executive chairman chris kermode insists there has been no cover-up. >> tennis has invested over $14 million to address this issue of corruption, and it's constantly being reviewed. >> reporter: world number one, novak djokovic, says he was offered $200,000 in 2007 to throw a first-round match in russia. >> i was approached through people that were working with me at that time, that were my team, and, of course, we-- we threw it away right away. >> reporter: djokovic made $21 million last year. tennis officials say most of the players involved earned far less. more than 70 are suspected of
the vast majority have not and will not be disciplined, because their alleged offenses took place before an anti-corruption rule was established in 2009. since 2010, the a.t.p. has disciplined 18 people, including a lifetime ban for five players. none of the names in the report has been made public, which top- ranked players say is a mistake. >> i would love to hear names, you know, and then at least it's concrete stuff, and you can actually debate about it. >> reporter: because the a.t.p. is not a law enforcement agency, it is limited in its evidence- gathering abilities. scott, they have interviewed players and witnesses and analyzed betting and phone records to uncover the foul play. >> pelley: don dahler, thanks. the tax man has a warning about the con man; there are new cases of the mosquito-borne virus linked to birth defects; and the son puts on a show, when the cbs even news continues.
