Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation on Tuesday allowing taxpayers to donate through their income tax return to Special Olympics Michigan.

House Bills 4632 and Senate Bill 381 create a tax checkoff to benefit Special Olympics. The events are funded entirely through donations and offer children and adults with intellectual disabilities the opportunity for sports, competition and socialization.

“The Special Olympics allow more than 20,000 Michigan athletes to compete in 23 different sports at no cost to them or their families,” Snyder said. “I am pleased this legislation will allow generous Michigander to donate to this worthy cause.”

The bills are now Public Acts 154 and 155 of 2012.
