Several Laws Signed Into Effect By Michigan’s Lt. Governor

LANSING (AP) – It’s a chance for Michigan’s Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley to get his signature on some new laws, while Governor Rick Snyder is out of the country on a trade trip to Asia.

One measure lets fire departments work with school districts to provide training to qualified students. Another lets pharmacists fill prescriptions received electronically from dentists licensed outside Michigan.

A third measure lets state police grant medical waivers so that drivers with diabetes may operate a school bus if they meet qualifications already in state law.

Another bill is designed to accommodate Detroit’s population decline by keeping the city eligible for certain measures related to property tax abatements.
