LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation aimed at helping military veterans gain employment in the electrician and plumbing fields.

The governor's office announced Wednesday that Snyder signed measures to require experience gained through military service to be taken into account when being considered for licenses in those fields.

Snyder also has signed legislation that would allow collection and redistribution of prescription medication. The measures aim to allow medical facilities to donate unused drugs for distribution to needy patients. Most other states have enacted similar laws.

Snyder also signed legislation requiring all state agencies to post online any information related to the expenditure of tax dollars. And he signed bills related to the Safe Delivery of Newborns law, including a measure designed to protect the identity of parents.
