Governor signs Nesbitt legislation to lower auto insurance rates

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Aric Nesbitt, R-Lawton, issued the following statement on Thursday after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed landmark no-fault reforms into law:

“After a lot of hard work, I am happy to see the governor sign into law reforms that are long overdue.

“This bipartisan effort will end the outdated system that has burdened Michigan drivers for decades. Families, seniors and all drivers will finally be able to choose their auto insurance coverage after nearly 50 years. The new law will also stop the massive overcharging for care involving auto accidents and crack down on fraud and lawsuit abuse.

“I applaud the governor’s action today. Lower rates will benefit drivers from every corner of our great state.”
