Michigan drivers are well aware of what it costs to insure their vehicles.   Our state has one of the most costly auto insurance in the USA.  A bill that would create three tiers of auto insurance options crashed and burned in the state legislature.   It was supposedly a bi-partisan effort, spearheaded by Republican Speaker of the House Tom Leonard and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, but almost no democrats supported it, and most republicans said no as well.  State. Rep. Dave Maturen was one of them and he outlined his concerns talking with Tim Collins on the WBCK Morning Show.  One of Maturen's concerns was that none of the bill's authors would answer key questions, such as whether or not the insurance savings would apply equally to all Michigan drivers.

Maturen also talks about efforts by the governor's Responsible Retirement Reform for Local Government Task Force.
