House no-fault reform bill is a mirage that won’t offer true protections to consumers
Cornack: We applaud Gov. Whitmer and House Democrats for rejecting unprecedented political maneuver
LANSING, Mich.—(May 9, 2019)— John Cornack, president of the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault (CPAN), issued the following statement in response to House Bill 4397, which was passed in the dark of night and would severely slash benefits for consumers.
“We applaud Gov. Whitmer and House Democrats for standing up for Michigan consumers and rejecting this unprecedented political maneuver, and we strongly support Gov. Whitmer’s calls for fair and reasonable legislation that provides strong consumer protections and offers immediate rate relief.
“Auto no-fault impacts every single driver in the state of Michigan. Ramrodding significant changes through the legislature with no opportunity for discussion is an insult to every single Michigan resident – particularly to those who have been injured in automobile accidents and whose essential care now hangs in the balance. We can and must do better.
“This bill is a mirage, and provides weak concessions that won’t actually protect consumers. We need to come to the table and have a serious conversation around how to lower auto insurance premiums without depriving auto accident victims of the essential care they need.”
