Billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert is starting a ballot drive as a "failsafe" in case Michigan's Republican-led Legislature and Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer do not enact legislation to cut the country's highest auto insurance premiums.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Thursday that she was open to letting drivers forgo mandatory, unlimited medical benefits covered by their auto insurance premiums, but only if they were still required to buy some level of coverage.
With her proposed 45-cents-a-gallon fuel tax hike stalled, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Tuesday that fixing the roads is still the "No. 1 issue" despite the Republican-led Legislature prioritizing an overhaul of Michigan's car insurance law.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday threatened to veto legislation that would cut what are the country's highest average auto insurance premiums, saying it falls short and urging the Republican-led Legislature not to send it to her desk without negotiated changes.
