LANSING, Mich. (AP) - People going to get property tax information in Michigan won’t have to pay more than 25 cents for each electronic copy of a record or more than $1,500 total under a new law.

Gov. Rick Snyder signed the legislation Monday.

He says the new law “ensures real estate transactions will be affordable and transparent statewide.”

The legislation sponsored by Republican Rep. Bruce Rendon of Lake City updates a law that had not been revised in 120 years. The idea for the change came from a workgroup aimed at bringing fairness and uniformity to the sharing of property tax information across all 83 Michigan counties.
