Gov. Snyder Proposes Cap To Personal Injury Insurance


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Would you be willing to pay more for car insurance if it meant you got lifetime coverage for serious injuries? Or should there be a limit to those payments?

Some lawmakers including Governor Rick Snyder believe there should be a cap. But there are others who say it will hurt taxpayers.

The governor proposed limiting personal injury protection at $1 million, saying this could save drivers about $125 per car for the first year.

Supporters of the current system hosted a town hall meeting Thursday morning to talk about what a cap would mean. People against the reform also say the changes would shift millions of dollars onto taxpayers and cost michigan hospitals an average of 10 million dollars every year.
