Bill Introduced to Reduce Auto Insurance Premiums in MI

Written by Kyle Simon, WILX

Even though Senate Republicans have taken Governor Gretchen Whitmer's proposed gas tax hike off the table during budget talks, lawmakers say they want to tackle Michigan's high auto insurance rates first.


Efforts to reform no-fault auto insurance in Michigan have been going for years.


A bill aimed at lowering auto insurance premiums was introduced in Congress the week of April 21.


Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's bill specifically calls for taking credit scores out of the equation when it comes to determining auto insurance rates. Tlaib claims the current auto insurance rates are discriminatory.


She held an auto insurance accountability town hall meeting April 24. She was joined by several other lawmakers who have pushed for auto insurance reform in the state.
