MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

A new bill could update Michigan's 42-year-old bottle deposit law. 

The legislature would add water and juice bottles to the list of containers subject to a 10-cent deposit. 

The bill excludes milk products. 

Since 1976, Michigan residents have paid the deposit on bottles and cans for beer, wine, soda and mineral water.
