LANSING — Following weeks of bipartisan negotiations, the House passed sweeping changes to Michigan’s auto insurance system today. The final bill includes several provisions put forward by House Democrats including the elimination of non-driving rate-setting factors, guaranteed rate reductions and increased consumer protections. In response, House Democratic Leader Representative Christine Greig (D-Farmington Hills) issued the following statement:

“Our state has come together on an auto insurance reform deal that is a good starting point in providing some relief to Michigan drivers. However, we have more work to do to permanently eliminate discriminatory rate-setting factors and protect access to quality care accident victims receive from our top health care providers. I am encouraged by the progress we have made so far and feel we are on the right path to putting some money back in the pockets of hardworking Michigan families. I look forward to continuing the process towards real and lasting relief for all Michigan drivers.”
