Snyder signs bills on crime victim compensation

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has signed several new pieces of legislation, including a package of bills on compensation for Michigan crime victims.

The governor's office says Snyder signed three bills that clarify definitions and strengthens compensation requirements and programs for crime victims. The bills were sponsored by fellow Republican state Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker of Lawton.

Snyder also has signed a bill that amends the Michigan Liquor Control Code. The measure removes a barrel production limit and allows brewers that aren't licensed as micro brewers to sell their beer to the public for on-site drinking.

Republican state Rep. Margaret O'Brien of Portage is that measure's backer.
