GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Is it possible for Lansing to make a change to auto no-fault insurance?
State Rep. Greg VanWoerkom, R-Norton Shores, wonders if the end game keeps changing.
“The Senate and the House are trying to negotiate in good faith with the Governor (Gretchen Whitmer). We’ve seen the proposal that the Governor has asked, we incorporated several of those in the House version and then you see more that the Governor is asking,” VanWoerkom said. “We’re curious about whether the goal post is being moved on this, but the bottom line is that that House passed a version of auto no-fault reform, which hasn’t happened in 30-40 years.”
State Rep. Terry Sabo, D-Muskegon, says he thought the committee he was serving on was making progress on the subject before Republicans passed a surprise bill.
“There are talks ongoing, so hopefully we’re headed into some sort of discussion that’s going to solve this problem,” Sabo said. “I thought we were already on that path and as it turns out, we were not.”
