Rep. Glenn: Drivers can offer input to lower car insurance rates

New legislative website to provide latest news on reform, public interaction

State Rep. Annette Glenn, of Williams Township, today announced the creation of a special website to keep people informed about the House Select Committee on Reducing Car Insurance Rates while giving Michigan drivers a chance to have their voices heard.

The website, www.ReduceMiRatesNow.com, allows anyone to easily offer input that could help shape future legislation.

“The cost of auto insurance is the number one issue my constituents talk to me about. A bipartisan, meaningful fix is needed now,” Glenn said. “Skyrocketing car insurance rates are forcing many Michigan families into making difficult financial decisions. I encourage drivers in Bay and Midland counties to join me to find a solution to the highest average car insurance premiums in the nation.”

The website includes a news tab allowing residents to keep up to date with developments and committee meeting schedules. Ideas submitted by Michigan drivers concerning legislation will go directly to the committee, assuring every submission will be considered.

“You’re overpaying for car insurance, and it’s time your story is heard,” Glenn said. “I am confident everyone can set the politics aside, and get reform across the finish line.”

Glenn also encourages residents to “like” the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ReduceMiRatesNow/ to follow the latest news regarding the committee.
