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

(Read his veto letter here.)

"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.

A spokeswoman for Republican Gov. Rick Snyder says he's undecided about signing legislation that would require Michigan to create and sell an anti-abortion fundraising license plate.

The Republican-led Senate enrolled S.B. 163 Tuesday after it won mostly party-line approval in the Legislature.
