Proos: Auto Insurance Reform Could Happen In 2014

State lawmakers are planning to take on some of the most controversial reforms in years in Lansing. A proposal is before the Legislature to overhaul the state's no-fault auto insurance laws and possibly put a cap on the unlimited medical benefits paid out through the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association. Senator John Proos of St. Joseph says that is costing all of us extra money.


Proos adds lawmakers have found around 25% of drivers in Michigan do not have valid insurance. He says they get around it by getting a temporary policy when they renew their plates and letting it lapse after that. He wants to find a solution that will continue to provide some level care for people that are badly hurt in car accidents, but that can also bring insurance costs down for everyone.


Lawmakers are considering a $10 million cap per person on that catastrophic benefit. Proos is hopeful that lawmakers will have something done by the end of this year.
