The debate over changing Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance system is underway in Lansing. Governor Rick Snyder Thursday introduced his plan to end unlimited lifetime medical benefits for people severely injured in auto accidents.
The governor’s plan would cap those benefits at a million dollars. Snyder says insurance rates are unacceptably high under the current system.
“We’re significantly higher than other states in the Midwest, we’re the eighth highest in the country, and that’s not a good situation,” he says. “We need to do something about it in terms of our costs.”
