Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is preparing to sign legislation so veterans can get a special designation on their driver's license or state ID card.

The bills require Michigan's secretary of state to include people's status as military veterans on licenses if they request it and haven't been dishonorably discharged. Supporters say the measures will help veterans obtain services and benefits without having to carry copies of discharge papers.

Snyder plans to sign the bills during a Tuesday afternoon ceremony in his office in the Capitol building. They take effect in May 2014.

The Senate Fiscal Agency estimates nearly $700,000 in new costs spread over a number of years to modify driver's licenses and state ID cards for veterans.
