A Plan to Help Michiganders Save Money on Auto Insurance Without Capping Personal Injury Benefits

Can Michiganders save money on their auto insurance without capping personal injury benefits?

House Democrats have proposed a 14 bill package that says YES.

House Democrats aim to save drivers money on auto insurance without capping personal injury benefits by targeting other areas of the state's insurance law.

The plan is to reduce auto insurance costs by eliminating the secondary lifestyle indicators currently used by insurance companies to unfairly calculate rates, such as credit score and zip code.

Press Conference: Key Public Officials Say NO to Auto No-Fault Reform

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson presents a unified opposition against Michigan Auto No-Fault reform; calling the proposed legislation, "A pro-insurance industry, anti-victim piece of legislation".

In his comments, Mr. Patterson says that the 17 billion dollar fund, which was created by drivers and is used for caring for victims of catastrophic auto accidents, is sustainable and growing.

He articulates specific problems with the proposed legislation and suggests that it was written only in the interest of insurance companies.

Wayne Co. Executive Robert Ficano, Macomb Co. Executive Mark Hackel and Thomas Stallworth III representing the Detroit caucus, were also present; as were members of CPAN and representatives from the health care sector.
