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.

    when is the Governor suppose to sign the Bill that changes the Drivers Responsibility fee law where it don’t affect prof of insurance and speeding tickets
    will it be retroactive? Is this all just talk I heard on the news that the bill was on the gov. desk waiting for his signature.
