MRP Statement on Republican Auto Insurance Reform Victories
LANSING, Mich., May 9, 2019– The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding the passage of Auto Insurance reform bills by both the Michigan State Senate and State House. The bills, which received overwhelming Republican support, are expected to result in massive savings for Michigan residents once reconciled. Currently, Michiganders pay the highest auto insurance rates in the nation.
“Today is a huge victory for the people of Michigan. After years of hard work, Republicans in the State legislature have found a solution which will deliver badly needed financial relief to residents across Michigan and drastically slash our highest in the nation auto insurance rates. Governor Whitmer seems determined to keep costs high for drivers whether it's with the highest auto insurance rates in the nation or the highest gas tax in the nation. It's time Governor Whitmer work with the Michigan legislature to make sensible reforms to fix our roads and our auto insurance system."
