LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill into law Tuesday that will extended current homestead property tax exemptions for disabled military veterans.

The legislation helps teh cost of home ownership who were honorably discharged and are disabled and/or unable to work.

"Michigan's military veterans, particularly those who are disabled, have sacrificed more for us than we can ever repay," Snyder said in a press release. "They have served to protect our way of life and our freedom. This property tax break will be available to their families will help them afford homes and stay right here in Michigan."

The new bill would continue the tax breaks, but also include a tax break for the spouses, as long as they don't re-marry.

There are around 700,000 veterans in the state of Michigan.
