Snyder Sign Bills for Vets Driver's Licenses, IDs | News
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation to allow Michigan veterans to get a special designation on their driver's license or state ID card.
The Republican signed the bill during a ceremony in his office Tuesday in the Capitol. The Senate Fiscal Agency estimates it will cost nearly $700,000 over a number of years.
Snyder says the laws will allow people to easily prove that they're veterans to get discounts and other benefits. He says Michigan is the 28th state to pass such laws. Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says it will take about a year to put a computer system in place to create the designations.
