The Detroit News says Snyder repeated many points from his State of the State address during an appearance at the Detroit Regional Chamber.

DETROIT (AP) - Panda bears at the Detroit Zoo?

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder tells business leaders that he'd like to see it happen, although he acknowledged Friday that the bears are expensive and hard to obtain. He's been interested since traveling to China on trade missions.

The Detroit News says Snyder repeated many points from his State of the State address during an appearance at the Detroit Regional Chamber. He also repeated his criticism of the federal government for its failure so far to agree to a U.S. Customs plaza at a new bridge linking Detroit and Canada.

Snyder's speech prevented him from attending President Barack Obama's appearance in East Lansing where Obama signed a new law authorizing farm and food stamp programs. Snyder instead sent his agriculture director.
