LANSING, Mich. — Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation requiring registered sex offenders living in Michigan to pay an annual $50 fee.

The bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Rick Jones replaces the system under which sex offenders paid a one-time $50 fee. Snyder signed the bill Tuesday.

The measure only applies to registered sex offenders who are out of prison. People who prove that they are indigent can get a fee waiver.

Snyder says the law brings Michigan in line with neighboring states that require sex offenders to pay for the operating cost of sex offender websites.

He says Indiana charges $50 per year, while Illinois and Ohio charge offenders $100 per year.
