Governor up for re-election runs on platform of auto insurance coverage reforms
Motorists in the state of Michigan have received a lot of attention in recent months. Last month, the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) unanimously voted to approve auto insurance premium refunds after Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer asked the MCCA to return her $ 5 billion surplus to auto insurance customers.
Now the Associated Press has revealed that a Democratic group allied with Whitmer will run ads throughout the Bowl season to publicize the outstanding $ 400 per vehicle insurance reimbursements for Michigan drivers. This move is the Democrats’ first step in the running for Whitmer’s governor and comes 11 months before her re-election.
In the ad, Whitmer, who is backed by a subsidiary of the Democratic Governors Association, stated that people can agree that Utah defeat the state of Ohio and that they deserve a break after “years of paying too much for auto insurance.”
The ads come after a report that despite Michigan’s auto insurance reform bill, which has cut premiums by an average of 18% since its inception, the state still has the most expensive auto policies in the country, according to an analysis by the University of Michigan’s Poverty Solutions Initiative.
