The governor's office said he signed 53 bills on Friday and vetoed four. He has acted on a total of 186 bills and 95 are pending review.

Snyder's actions included signing abortion regulations that supporters say protect women but opponents consider an assault on the right to terminate pregnancy. He vetoed legislation he originally sought to overhaul Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan because he objected to provisions preventing businesses from providing elective abortion coverage in employee health plans.

Snyder also authorized the first revisions of Michigan's voter-approved medical marijuana law as well as legislation protecting online passwords of job applicants and employees.
