Auto Insurance Relief Ahead

Governor Whitmer Announces Bipartisan Auto Insurance Reform Agreement, Ben Frederick Casts 'Yes' Vote 

Governor Gretchen Whitmer says an agreement on auto insurance relief has been reached. “After constructive conversations over the past week, I am pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement in concept on bipartisan auto no-fault reform legislation that will lower costs and protect coverage for Michigan drivers. The deal: guarantees rate relief for every Michigan driver; provides a choice in coverage levels; establishes more uniform and structured compensation levels for medical providers; and removes the ability of insurance companies to discriminate based on non-driving factors. I look forward to working with the legislature to pass and sign this important legislation into law.”

A Friday release from State Representative Ben Frederick's office says the Michigan House approved a bipartisan plan to fix the state’s much-maligned car insurance system and reduce rates for all Michigan drivers.

Frederick voted in favor of the plan which maintains the best life-saving medical benefits in the nation, provides seniors and those with other health insurance coverage the ability to opt out of personal injury coverage, reins in medical costs, and fights fraud – features designed to end Michigan’s long-standing tenure as the state with the most expensive car insurance rates in the nation, the release states.

Frederick has played a key role in leading reform efforts as a member of the House Select Committee on Reducing Car Insurance Rates, the special panel solely dedicated to crafting a long-lasting solution to lower drivers’ costs.

“After productive negotiations with the governor, this bipartisan solution makes common-sense compromises that will undoubtedly reduce the burdensome costs crushing families in mid-Michigan and across the state,” Frederick, of Owosso, said after the vote. “I’m pleased there was willingness on both sides of the aisle to work together to construct a plan guaranteeing Michigan families save a significant amount of money while protecting drivers and their loved ones injured in auto accidents. As a member of the special committee, it was a pleasure being part of the process that led to long-overdue reforms for the people of Michigan. After three months of examining this issue very carefully, I’m confident we have secured the right reform path.”

Senate Bill 1 now advances to the Senate for final legislative approval.
