Gov. Snyder Signs Bill On Crime Victim Restitution

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation that requires criminals to continue to pay restitution in cases where a victim later dies.

The governor's office says Tuesday's signing updates the William Van Regenmorter Crime Victim Rights Act to require remaining restitution payments be made to a victim's estate. Snyder says in a statement it's a "common-sense bill that will help victims' families get the justice they deserve."

Snyder on also signed two other bills.

One allows homeowners to request a principal residence property tax exemption for any year that such an exemption erroneously was not included on the tax roll. The other clarifies that historic agricultural application of fertilizer, soil conditioner, manure, pesticide, crop residuals, crop processing byproducts or aquatic plants doesn't constitute a contaminated site.
