Mackinac Policy Conference Day 3: Gov. Whitmer’s Keynote Address & Auto Insurance Reform

There’s a lot to look forward to on Mackinac Island Thursday as the Mackinac Policy Conference moves into day three.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has a packed agenda, including giving her first keynote address as governor and signing a new auto insurance reform bill at 10 a.m.

The state house and senate both passed the legislation last week.

It would give drivers the option to choose their level of medical coverage on their car insurance and it stops insurance companies from basing rates on non-driving related factors like credit scores, zip codes and gender.

The bill also includes certain mandates to bring rates down.
