10.8.15: Snyder signs law to let drivers show insurance on phone
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan drivers pulled over by the police will be able to show proof of their auto insurance on a phone or another mobile device instead of having to provide a hard copy under legislation signed by Gov. Rick Snyder.
The law takes effect in three months.
Snyder, who signed it Wednesday, says the goal is to modernize government and make everyday life easier for residents.
The governor also signed a budget bill providing $4.3 million more to intermediate school districts to increase the number of half-day slots in a preschool program. Another new law renames a portion of U.S. 12 in Berrien County for Steven DeVries, a state trooper shot and killed while apprehending a bank robber in 1972.
