first_img Categories: Kahle News,News 24May Rep. Kahle: House advances historic plan to guarantee car insurance savings for Michigan drivers State Rep. Bronna Kahle today voted to advance a bipartisan plan that delivers significant savings for Michigan drivers on their car insurance bills.Kahle and the House approved a plan guaranteeing lower rates by giving drivers more choice on personal injury protection coverage, stopping price gouging on medical services for car accident victims, and combating fraudulent claims. All Michigan drivers will save money on the PIP portion of their policies, and some could save hundreds of dollars a year, depending on which coverage options they choose.The bipartisan solution – coming after weeks of negotiations – is designed to end Michigan’s long tenure as the state with the most expensive car insurance rates in the nation. The plan should soon be headed to the governor for her expected signature.“I’ve heard your concerns about the high cost of car insurance – and I am thrilled to say we are making great progress to address those concerns,” said Kahle, of Adrian. “This plan will make driving far more affordable for our friends, families and neighbors in Lenawee County and across the state. But we can’t relax after this vote. We need the governor to finish the job and put this solution into state law – finally delivering the rate relief drivers deserve.”Michigan’s costs are high largely because it’s the only state mandating unlimited lifetime health care coverage through car insurance. The bipartisan reform plan allows those currently using the coverage to keep it, and those who want it in the future to continue buying it – while providing more affordable options.The legislation is Senate Bill 1.#####last_img
