Changes coming to Michigan's no-fault auto insurance?
A fight is brewing at the state Capitol over whether Michigan’s no-fault auto insurance law should be changed.
Backers of the legislation want drivers to be able to opt out of coverage that provides unlimited lifetime benefits for the most severely injured accident victims.
Pete Kuhnmuench, with the Insurance Institute of Michigan, says the option would save people money:
"We think putting more money back in the pockets of the consumers we think now is the right time to do that, given our economics," says Kuhnmuench.
A study commissioned by the measure’s opponents says most drivers would choose to underinsure themselves to save money.
The study says that would cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars.
