Auto No-Fault sees resurgence in state legislature

POTHOLE08_SU_C_^_SUNDAYControversial legislation to scrap unlimited, lifetime medical coverage for car crash victims is back up for consideration in Lansing.

Proponents of the current system say the law makes sure victims are taken care of. But Republicans have been trying for decades to scale back the state’s unlimited medical coverage for people injured in car crashes.

The proposed legislation would let consumers pick their levels of coverage.

Speaker of the House Tom Leonard says auto no fault overhaul is one of his party’s biggest priorities.

“This is an issue, one of the biggest issues facing our state.”

The legislation would also create an auto insurance fraud and theft prevention authority.
