Approved Bills Become Michigan Laws

A number of bills  were signed into law by Governor Snyder yesterday.

The bills were related to bridge cards, health care and election boards. Any store or bar that allows customers to buy liquor or lottery tickets on their bridge card, will face the possibility of losing their liquor license and lottery sales license. In regards to health care, a one-percent tax on health insurance claims for Medicaid users is extended until January 2018. Three different bills, transfers the responsibilities of local election boards to the county level.  The final bill, in relation to crime, allows judges to install some sort of GPS tracking system on certain defendants who are out on bail.
