Snyder signs bill moving Michigan Court of Claims

LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder plans to sign legislation moving the state's Court of Claims out of the Ingham County Circuit Court and under the umbrella of the Court of Appeals.

Democrats in the state House denounced it as a "political power grab" and called it "embarrassing."  The vote in the House was close, with the measure passing 57-52 after it had already been approved by the Senate.

Representative Sam Singh of East Lansing went so far as to call the bill unconstitutional, and other Democrats claim the move was done because Ingham County judges have typically ruled against Republican interests.
