LANSING, Mich. (AP) - With the snowstorm over, Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to take action on a stack of bills approved by Michigan lawmakers.

Snyder has been away from the state capital but took dozens of bills to his Ann Arbor-area home before Christmas. The storm made travel hazardous Wednesday and had an impact on his staff's plans to file bills in Lansing with the official state seal.

Spokeswoman Sara Wurfel says bill signings should pick up through the rest of the week.

The House and Senate approved about 300 bills before adjourning on Dec. 14.

Legislation still awaiting Snyder's possible signature includes new rules for abortion clinics and a replacement for the emergency manager law that was repealed by voters.
