Speaker of the House Jason Wentworth today released the following statement on the MCCA’s decision to refund a portion of its surplus operating funds to Michigan drivers:
“Delivering real savings like this to Michigan drivers is the entire reason we fixed the state’s broken auto insurance system in 2019. We wrote this law to include an automatic refund next year, and I’m glad our reforms have produced large enough savings for the MCCA to act immediately and return that money to the people even sooner. No fault reform is working, and the savings and benefits for Michigan families are getting better all the time.
“I’m also glad to see the governor join us in support of this law. It took a lot of time and effort to get this done, and even now some people still talk about scaling it back. The governor’s endorsement of the current law and the savings it produces as is shows how successful our reform has been.”
Speaker Wentworth says economic development legislation moving through the Legislature in December reflects part of a larger focus on long-term job retention and growth in Michigan.
Michigan House Republicans today detailed a comprehensive plan to support public safety personnel and better protect the people they serve – including an innovative out-of-state recruitment plan to address an officer shortage at local law enforcement agencies.
State legislators from the Michigan House of Representatives invited first responders and military veterans and active duty servicemembers from their local communities to attend the event commemorating the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001 and honoring the first responders and members of the military who fell in the line of duty during the past year.
