LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Are you a Michigander or a Michiganian?

A new state law favors using the term Michigander.

Gov. Rick Snyder in recent days signed a 13-bill package related to modernizing laws related to historical markers. A portion of one bill defines residents of the state as Michiganders and removes references to the term Michiganians.
