Governor Snyder hopes lawmakers will tackle local public pension costs, a no-fault auto insurance overhaul, promoting recycling, and establishing a system to grade every Michigan school. The governor hopes the Legislature won’t deliver the rare rebuke of overriding a veto. That’s after he rejected a bill to accelerate a tax break for new car buyers.
He said it would put too big a strain on the state budget. But Snyder says he’s ready to deal with it if it happens.
“I have a good relationship with the Legislature. They make their decisions. I’m a separate branch of government, and I want to continue working well with them.”
It’s been 15 years since the state Legislature mustered the two-thirds majority to reverse a veto.
