Detroit News: Plan to cut Mich. insurance rates faces Senate hurdles

Posted on September 27, 2017

MHA CEO Brian Peters was quoted in a Detroit News article on the latest auto no-fault insurance reform proposal, announced on Sept. 26.

An MHA analysis of the proposal, from Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, Speaker of the House Tom Leonard (R-Dewitt), Rep. Lana Theis (R-Brighton) and several interest groups, revealed that the legislation does not adequately protect drivers or guarantee real savings (see related article).

The new legislation “isn’t a new beginning — it’s a non-starter,” Peters said.

The MHA is opposed to proposals that would jeopardize access to care for people who have been catastrophically injured in car accidents. The association will host a Twitter chat Oct. 4 from noon to 1 p.m. to discuss the auto no-fault issue, and the first episode of the MiCare Champion podcast series also covers the issue.
