The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) says
the House passed a portion of a bill package which contains what the group calls misguided reforms,
including a prohibition on credit-based insurance scoring.

House members passed this legislation without proper deliberation or debate, despite insurance industry offers to
participate in a workgroup that would allow appropriate consideration of real ways to reduce auto insurance costs in Michigan,
said Ann Weber, PCI vice president in an announcement released by the trade group.

PCI maintains that supporters of the proposed auto insurance reforms have greatly misrepresented several critical facts about Michigans auto insurance marketplace, but lawmakers should be aware of the following:

* And despite the economy, credit scores are staying stable.
* Given that Michigans mandated auto insurance benefits, including the unlimited no-fault injury benefits, are considered the most expensive in the nation, the average price paid by driver in the state is extremely reasonable.
* In fact, personal auto insurers in Michigan suffered a 10-year underwriting loss of 19.2 percent of earned premiums, while their 10-year operating return resulted in a loss of 2.4 percent of premiums.
* Legislation that could drive businesses out of the state would only lead to a further deterioration of Michigans economy.

Michigans Automobile and Home Insurance Consumer Advocate Melvin Butch Hollowell today joined Michigan House and Senate Democrats to announce the Fair and Affordable Insurance Reform, or FAIR, initiative – a package of insurance reform bills to make auto insurance rates more affordable and insurance companies more accountable.

During her 2009 State of the State address, Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm called on the state legislature to adopt comprehensive auto insurance reform this year.

The keys to achieving this reform are bipartisan support, protection of our excellent No Fault health care coverage, and providing fair and equal treatment to all consumers, no matter where they live, Hollowell said.
