LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The leader of the Michigan Senate says frustration over Gov. Rick Snyder’s recent vetoes of gun, e-cigarette and forestry bills has subsided among Republicans.

Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof told reporters Tuesday the Snyder recently visited a GOP caucus meeting and explained his vetoes. Meekhof says Republicans still don’t agree with Snyder, a fellow Republican, but their “frustration level has gone down.”

Snyder vetoed gun bills because they would have let some people obtain concealed pistol licenses even if they had personal protection orders against them. Senators appear ready to pass the legislation again without that provision.

Other Senate bills would have prohibited e-cigarettes from being regulated as tobacco products and limited the state’s authority to designate public land for the promotion of biological diversity.
