Snyder set to sign bill to repeal item pricing law
Governor Rick Snyder is scheduled to sign a bill today that will repeal the state law that requires price tags on most retail items.
The Governor first proposed the repeal of the law in his State of the State address in January. The Associated Press reports:
Supporters of repeal say technological improvements make pricing every item unnecessary and note prices must still be clearly posted. Massachusetts is the only state with a law similar to Michigan's. It applies only to food retailers.
The United Food and Commercial Workers Union says grocery jobs will be lost when the new law takes effect in September, but some retail groups say workers are likely to be given other tasks.
Snyder is scheduled to sign the bill this afternoon at 2 p.m. in Lansing.
