The state Legislature will get rolling on potential changes to the state’s auto no fault insurance laws Tuesday. Michigan Public Radio’s Cheyna Roth has more.

The Insurance committee meets at 9:00 A-M. Lawmakers will hear testimony and possibly discuss amendments to an insurance overhaul bill.

Supporters say it would reduce insurance bills for drivers by 20 percent on average.

Republican Representative Lana Theis is a bill sponsor. She says she’s open to all opinions.

“It’s the singular thing I think we can do for Michigan residents that is going to improve their lives in a way that is very real.” Theis says.

The governor will keep a close eye on all hearings related to auto no-fault.

He says if a bill doesn’t reach his desk by the end of the year, he’s afraid it won’t happen before he leaves office.
