LANSING — Today, legislation to drastically alter Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance system died in the House without a vote. The bill, Senate Bill 1014, was strikingly similar to House Bill 5013, which also failed to pass the House in November 2017. In response to the bill’s rejection, state Rep. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo (D-Detroit) issued the following statement:

“While I’m glad we put this retread bill back to sleep before Christmas, I am eager to take on no-fault reform with my colleagues in the 100th Legislature and Governor-elect Whitmer. As the sole Detroiter serving on the House Insurance committee, I am committed to being at the table with stakeholders to lead deliberations on these reforms. Real rate relief is needed for Michigan drivers, and the proposed legislation provided no guarantees for reductions, nor did it outlaw the predatory and discriminatory insurance practice of redlining, all while jeopardizing our world-class coverage. These are the issues we need to be addressing when we consider no-fault reforms next session, so we can provide the people of Michigan the complete and comprehensive reform they deserve.”
