Statement from House Democratic Floor Leader Rep. Christine Greig (D-Farmington Hills) on her opposition to House Bill 5013

Thursday, November 2, 2017

LANSING — This evening, the Michigan House of Representatives voted on House Bill 5013, which makes various changes to the state’s auto no-fault insurance system. The bill failed to pass, and in response, House Democratic Floor Leader state Rep. Christine Greig (D-Farmington Hills) issued the following statement:

“House Bill 5013 would have dramatically cut benefits without providing meaningful, long-term cost reductions for all drivers, and I could not support a bill like that, especially when something better is available. The bipartisan Fair and Affordable No-Fault plan offers meaningful relief because it addresses the factors that truly influence costs in Michigan. Our plan would put the power back in the hands of the people — not insurance companies, who’d hoped to rig the system in their favor with HB 5013. We’re ready to lower rates while protecting the coverage the people of Michigan deserve, so I hope the plan we’re offering receives a hearing soon.”
