Statement from State Rep. Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) on Recently Proposed Auto Insurance Reform

LANSING – Yesterday, a coalition of legislators introduced legislation to reform no-fault auto insurance in an attempt to lower insurance rates in Michigan. State Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) released the following statement:

“While I applaud the work that so many have done to find a solution to lower auto insurance rates, I am concerned that Michigan drivers are promised phantom savings and will not have the protection they need when they become involved in an auto accident. Auto insurers will save millions in claim payments under House Bill 5013, but drivers who keep their current benefits will see no rate reductions. Taking away coverage to reduce premiums while shifting medical costs on to Michigan drivers is the wrong approach to tackle high auto insurance rates. Serious reforms should include creating a state fraud authority to aggressively go after fraud and claims handling abuse and requiring the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association be more open and transparent. I am committed to working with my colleagues in Lansing to legitimate and permanent insurance premium rate reductions while protecting the health and well-being of accident victims.”
