Governor Snyder Signs bill designating the state Capitol as a historic structure.

LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder has signed a long list of bills everything from designating the State Capitol to be a historic site to authorizing MDOT to allow angle parking on state trunk lines when appropriate.

One of the bills would make it a felony to install skimmers on ATM machines and gas pumps and other devices that read credit and debit cards. Crooks will install the devices and steal the codes on the back of the cards, permitting them to access your accounts. The law makes it a 5-year felony, and a second offense punishable by up to 15 years.

Another bill signed Thursday allows a new car buyer to deduct the cost of his trade-in when paying state sales tax on a new car.

The Governor also signed a bill that will allow the customer of a restaurant to bring his own wine, if that eating establishment has a liquor license, but the restaurant may also charge a fee.

A bill sponsored by a Northern Michigan lawmaker would extract a dollar from every hunting license fee which would be spent promoting hunting and fishing in Michigan.

There are a number of bills clarifying economic development laws, another would allow wider off road vehicles on state forest trails, and a few that liberalize liquor control in Michigan.
