Bill introduced to reduce auto insurance premiums in Michigan

By  | 

LANSING, MI (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 earlier this week.

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 is holding an auto insurance accountability town hall meeting Wednesday night. She will be joined by several other lawmakers who have pushed for auto insurance reform in the state.

The meeting will be held at Focus Hope in Detroit from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
