Gov. Rick Snyder has vetoed legislation requiring Michigan to create and sell an anti-abortion fundraising license plate.

"But SB 163 is not about a license plate," Snyder said in a statement released Friday. "It's about the State of Michigan making a political statement."
The Republican governor said that political statement could "bitterly divide" millions of residents and was inappropriate for a state-issued plate.
