"I don’t believe in discrimination," Snyder told Crain's Detroit Business. "I hope that’s something the Legislature will take up sometime this year."
He did not say whether he would sign a bill if it passed in the legislature, according to Crain's.
While Snyder signaled his support for gay rights, he has not taken a stance on same-sex marriage. When a federal court struck down the state's ban on gay marriage, Snyder said he would follow court orders but declined to state his personal view.
“If a federal judge changes the law…then I’m going to follow what’s been redefined as the law,” he said in March. “So I am not spending time [on] the issue itself."
In February however, Snyder's office asked a judge to uphold Michigan's ban on providing benefits to same-sex couples, arguing that it saved the state money.
