Snyder questions approach of fellow Republican governors
WASHINGTON (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is questioning the approach of his fellow Republican governors in the upper Midwest.
He said in an interview with The Associated Press that their efforts to push through divisive legislation may make governing more difficult in the long run.
Snyder says he sees large protests in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana about anti-union laws as unfortunate. He says pushing the contentious legislation means those states will have overcome
divisiveness and hard feelings in the future.
Snyder spoke to the AP on Wednesday, while in Washington to a congressional committee about job creation.
Snyder says he prefers a consensus approach to governing. He says government should do what it can, find areas of agreement and get that done rather than focus on potentially divisive legislation.
