LANSING, Mich. (AP) - How does a bill become a law? It can take extra time when there's a Michigan snowstorm.

Gov. Rick Snyder took dozens of bills to his Ann Arbor-area home before Christmas. Spokeswoman Sara Wurfel says the snowstorm Wednesday created delays and prevented staff from getting some legislation returned to Lansing to be filed as new laws.

The House and Senate approved about 300 bills before adjourning on Dec. 14. They include regulations on abortion clinics and a replacement for the emergency manager law that was repealed by voters in the November election.
