Gov. Rick Snyder has vetoed bills that would have loosened Michigan’s licensing restrictions on air guns and limited local governments’ freedom to set their own regulations.
The one-year pilot program will be used in three counties, which have not been announced. If drug use is suspected, welfare recipients or applicants are required to take a substance abuse test.
Should he run, Snyder might join the “practical” candidates in the GOP field, such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Gov. Rick Snyder announced a plan in April to double the state’s residential recycling rate to 30 percent within the next two years.

The whole thing hinges, however, on what voters decide.
House Speaker Jase Bolger and Minority Leader Tim Greimel say they are “very close” to an agreement.
