LANSING — The House passed a sweeping overhaul of Michigan’s auto insurance system today. The final bill was rushed to its conclusion and ended our over 40 year system of auto no fault insurance. Instead of making an historic first attempt to remedy the system, the will of the legislature was to end the system. In response, state Rep. Donna Lasinski (D-Scio Township) issued the following statement:


          I was proud to be Vice Chair of the House Select Committee on Reducing Auto Insurance Rates, and remain proud of the bipartisan, transparent work we did on that committee to deliver fair, affordable reform for Michigan drivers. This legislation does not deliver on that promise, and that’s why I voted no. My constituents deserve reform that actually protects them from non-driving factors, and they deserve a transparent process to deliver that reform. We all need guaranteed rate relief that is not an average across the state, but a real reduction for each and every driver.”
