LANSING, Mich. – State Sen. Ed McBroom, testified before the Senate Insurance and Banking Committee yesterday to discuss the impact of high auto insurance rates on Upper Peninsula drivers. McBroom said “Ratepayers in the U.P. and around the state are demanding auto insurance savings; There is no better way to put money back in the pockets of the people than by reforming car insurance.” The committee hearing was the latest in a series of meetings related to Senate Bill 1, which would reform Michigan’s unique no-fault auto insurance system. SB 1 was introduced in January and seeks to lower auto insurance costs by providing drivers more choice in what they pay for, lowering the number of people without auto insurance, and reducing fraud in the system, all while ensuring accident victims receive necessary medical care.
