70 bills waiting for governor's signature
LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - More than 200 new laws passed through the Michigan legislature, and about 70 more are awaiting the governor's signature after a final burst of voting.
This year's top laws include the landmark expansion of government-funded medical coverage to hundreds of thousands more low-income adults and restrictions on insurance coverage of abortions.
Lawmakers also increased spending to send more disadvantaged 4-year-olds to preschool and approved a one-time increase in road funding while ignoring Snyder's request for a permanent increase in gasoline taxes and vehicle registration fees.
