Snyder Picks Up Unlikely Ally in Pricing Campaign

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder has picked up an unlikely ally in his push to do away with Michigan's 35-year-old item-pricing law.

Former Attorney General Frank Kelley tells The Associated Press he'd like to see lawmakers change the measure.

The Democrat says technology has reached the point that sticking a price on every item has become unnecessary.

Plus, he says, if the rest of the U.S. can make it work, so can Michigan. Only Massachusetts has a similar law.

Kelley served as AG for nearly 40 years and is the man perhaps most associated with item pricing.

He used to make surprise visits to stores to make sure they were in observance and touted such efforts during his many re-election bids.

Snyder announced on Wednesday his desire to eliminate item pricing.
