LANSING (WWJ) – In his State of the State address Governor Rick Synder proposed ending item pricing in Michigan’s retail stores.

WWJ NewsRadio 950’s Rob Sanford reports not everyone likes the idea.

The Governor states that  eliminating item pricing will save businesses millions of dollars every year.

 A bill to outlaw the pricing was introduced earlier this month in the state house.

Mark Hornbeck of the AARP says his group is against the idea.

A recent study claims the item pricing law is equal to a $2.2 billion hidden tax on shoppers.
