      More than 200 new Michigan laws enacted in 2013

      Gov. Rick Snyder and legislators have enacted more than 200 new laws in 2013, with roughly 70 more awaiting the governor's signature after a final burst of voting.

      The year's top laws include a landmark expansion of government-funded medical coverage to hundreds of thousands more low-income adults and restrictions on insurance coverage of abortions.

      Lawmakers also increased spending to send more disadvantaged 4-year-olds to preschool and approved a one-time increase in road funding while ignoring Snyder's request for a permanent increase in gasoline taxes and vehicle registration fees.

      Other highlights include cutting taxes on the purchase of a car when trading in a vehicle, a boost in hunting and fishing license fees and a decision to process thousands of untested rape-evidence boxes discovered in Detroit's crime lab five years ago.
