"Charlie and I can remember being here...touring the Capitol. It was so exciting," Davis said. "And to be back here under these circumstances is really, really, exciting for us."
Snyder presented the Olympians with a special tribute.
"We are so proud to be able to represent the state," said White. "We have been here from beginning to end and we can't imagine living, let alone training, anywhere else in the world."
Snyder also honored Michigan Special Olympics gold medalist Teadoro "Tia" Spremo, who won a a gold medal in figure skating at the 2014 State Winter Games.
"It made me become a better person and skating is why I got involved with Special Olympics," said Spremo. "Friends and classmates motivate me. It taught me important things that I can use everyday."
Snyder also did some electioneering for White and Davis, who will appear on "Dancing with the Stars" beginning March 17.
"This is a place where people vote all the time, but you'll actually have a chance to vote for them," Snyder said. "So you might want to keep that in mind when you see them on TV."
The duo will return to Michigan next month as part of the Stars on Ice tour, which makes a stop at Joe Louis Arena on April 27.
During their visit, the gold medalists filmed a public service announcement with Snyder on his 4x4 fitness plan, which includes maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise, getting an annual physical examination and avoiding all tobacco use.
