Governor Rick Snyder is speaking out about legislation passed in the State Senate on Wednesday that would allow people to carry concealed weapons in schools.

Snyder says his opinions on the topic haven't changed since vetoing a similar bill in 2012. "I'm always open to talking about topics, and I always look at bills as they come to my desk, but again, I don't see any real change from where we were."

The house is now taking up the legislation. The Governor was in Charlotte Thursday to celebrate the city's graduation from the "Rising Tide" program. The state-sponsored initiative helps communities develop economic strategies. Charlotte is the first of 10 Michigan towns to graduate from the program.
