Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A bill sponsored by an Upper Michigan lawmaker has been vetoed by Governor Rick Snyder.

House bill 4573, sponsored by 110th District State Representative Scott Dianda of Calumet, sought to prorate fees for liquor licenses in Michigan.

In his veto Snyder said prorating fees for liquor licenses was sensible reform but would result in a loss of revenue of up to $600,000 annually, and that issue was not addressed in the bill.

Snyder also voiced concern about public health and safety due to a provision limiting penalties for multiple and repeat violations for sale to a minor or visibly intoxicated person or any other unauthorized purchases.
