LANSING — The Michigan House voted early this morning in favor of House Bill 4397, which takes steps to reform Michigan’s auto insurance system and lower rates for Michiganders. In response, state Rep. Sara Cambensy (D-Marquette) issued the following statement:

“This morning, I voted yes to take the first step to lower car insurance rates and keep negotiations between the Michigan House and Senate moving forward before it reaches the governor. I understand this bill does not yet provide the guaranteed rate relief Michigan drivers expect and deserve from Lansing. I understand that the governor will veto this bill as-is without them. This is why I urge all of my colleagues in Lansing to come together in the coming weeks and finish the work we started.”
