Rep. Bronna Kahle today said Lenawee County drivers will soon see the financial benefits of car insurance reforms the Michigan Legislature approved earlier this year.
The Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association announced it will charge a $100 per vehicle assessment for the year-long period beginning July 2, 2020.

Drivers who choose lower coverage limits under Michigan’s revised no-fault insurance law will avoid the fee altogether.
The current $220 fee is assessed on all insured vehicles.
