LANSING, Mich. (AP — Hunters in Michigan could wear pink instead of orange under a bill sent to Gov. Rick Snyder.

The state House approved the legislation 81-27 Tuesday.

It would require the Natural Resources Commission to review and determine if pink or any additional colors are effective and safe for people to wear while hunting. Currently, hunters must wear orange.

The commission would have to act by October 2017.
