Statement on auto no-fault insurance reform
Friday, May 24, 2019


Statement from Doug Rothwell, President & CEO of Business Leaders for Michigan:

“Business Leaders for Michigan applauds Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, and Speaker Lee Chatfield for showing tremendous leadership in coming to agreement on reforming the state’s auto no-fault insurance law. Sky-high costs for auto insurance have been a detriment to Michigan’s competitiveness for many years. When these reforms take effect, millions of Michiganders will realize significant savings in their personal budgets.

“Coming together to work out a compromise shows that our leaders in Lansing are serious about finding solutions to our biggest challenges, and we are encouraged this will only help as our leaders turn their attention to finishing the budget and finding a permanent funding solution for our roads crisis.”
