LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has signed a law letting unhealthy snacks be sold at school bake sales again.

Certain foods became off limits last year at in-school fundraisers when Michigan’s education department decided against allowing exemptions to new federal nutritional standards. The new law lets schools host at least two fundraisers a week that don’t meet the guidelines.

Snyder also signed legislation Wednesday aiming to improve conditions in mobile home parks after one in Lansing had to be condemned and its residents evacuated. The law requires better communication among the agencies involved in mobile home park oversight and increases fines.

State agencies will have to pass along complaints about conditions in mobile home parks to local governments.

Snyder also signed legislation providing legal immunity to people who donate food to nonprofits.
