Witwer on rushed auto insurance reform legislation

Thursday, May 9, 2019

LANSING — In a last-minute push, the legislative majority passed House Bill 4397, an auto no-fault bill that fails to provide real rate relief to Michigan’s hardworking families. With no hearing or public input, this bill does not guarantee lower rates or end discriminatory rate setting. In response, state Rep. Angela Witwer (Delta Township) issued the following statement:

“We owe it to the people of Michigan to come together as a Legislature and come up with the best possible solution to this longtime issue. Auto insurance reform is not a partisan issue, and if this chamber continues treating it as such, it is Michigan’s hardworking families that will continue to suffer. This is a problem that deserves our time and attention, and jamming a bill through the House without proper care or debate is simply not the way we were elected to govern.”
