LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has signed laws prohibiting felons from possessing ammunition until three to five years after they have served their time and finished probation or parole.

Michigan already prohibits convicted felons from possessing firearms for a certain amount of time. The governor said the new laws close a loophole to apply similar provisions to ammunition possession and simplify sentencing procedures.

The main bill signed Tuesday was sponsored by Republican Rep. Kurt Heise of Wayne County’s Plymouth Township.
