Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has returned nearly all of his 2011 salary to the state in one lump sum.
Spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said Friday that the Republican governor returned the money at year's end.
Snyder announced last February that he'd work for $1 in 2011 as part of the "shared sacrifice" needed to balance the budget.
Since there's no mechanism for the state to withhold his paychecks, the governor still received his $159,300 salary.
Wurfel says Snyder hasn't decided what he'll take for pay in 2012.
Snyder became a multimillionaire through his work as a former Gateway computer executive and venture capitalist.
Former Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm voluntarily cut her $177,000 annual salary by 5 percent before the State Officers Compensation Committee cut the amount by 10 percent in 2009.
