Snyder: Bridge among 2012 highlights

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Rick Snyder says his administration achieved many accomplishments in 2012, especially a deal on a new bridge to Canada and repealing a tax on equipment paid by businesses.

In a year-end talk with reporters Friday, Snyder didn't have the right-to-work law on that list. But he later said companies interested in Michigan already have been calling. The law gives workers a choice whether to financially support a union.

Snyder says Detroit is in crisis and "the crisis is getting worse every day." He says he'll wait for a report by a review team before deciding whether to appoint an emergency manager. The governor says some type of "action will be taken."

Snyder says he's still looking at legislation that puts more regulations on abortion clinics.
