State Rep. Pauline Wendzel joined her colleagues in approving a bipartisan plan to deliver significant rate relief for drivers across the state.
The House overwhelmingly voted to approve legislation guaranteeing lower rates by giving drivers more choice on personal injury protection coverage, prohibiting the use of non-driving factors in rate setting, and combating fraudulent claims to help lower costs. The plan will soon be headed to Governor Whitmer for her expected signature.
The bipartisan solution is designed to end Michigan’s long tenure as the state with the most expensive car insurance rates in the nation.
“After weeks of negotiations and meetings, I am pleased we were able to come up with a bipartisan compromise to deliver for the people of Southwest Michigan,” Wendzel said. “For decades, special interests have profited off of our broken insurance system while Michiganders have had their wallets drained. Today, that finally ends.”
Michigan’s costs are high largely because it’s the only state mandating unlimited lifetime health care coverage through car insurance. The bipartisan reform plan allows those currently using the coverage to keep it, and those who want it in the future to continue buying it – while providing more affordable options.
