Categories: Sheppard News

State Rep. Jason Sheppard, of Temperance, invites residents to attend an informational meeting and conversation on the need for auto insurance reform with special guest state Rep. Lana Theis, chair of the House Insurance Committee.

Rep. Theis, of Brighton, has been working with Rep. Sheppard to reform Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance and lower the cost of out-of-control auto insurance rates.

 “Since taking office, I have dedicated my time working on making changes to Michigan’s auto insurance system,” Sheppard said. “We must enact reforms that will make auto insurance more affordable for hard-working families and seniors living on fixed incomes.”

The informational meeting will take place on Monday, Oct. 2, at Bedford Township Hall located at 8100 Jackman Road in Temperance at 5 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.

“Michigan’s average auto insurance premium – nearly $2,400 per year – is more than $1,000 above the national average and twice as high as some neighboring states,” Theis said.

“I look forward to having Rep. Theis come to my district where she and I can hear from the community and personal stories from those impacted by Michigan’s expensive auto insurance system,” Sheppard said.
