LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Governor Rick Snyder defended using private donations to pay for Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr’s expenses.

On Tuesday, Snyder said using the funds to pay Orr’s living expenses is an “appropriate use” of the funds and saves Detroit taxpayers money.  On Monday, city and state officials disclosed that Snyder’s New Energy to Reinvest and Diversity Fund, or NERD Fund, is dishing out 42-hundred dollars a month on Orr’s lodging at the Westin Book Cadillac hotel.

The NERD Fund was designed to offset the cost of government with private donations to the not-for-profit organization.
