Efforts to overhaul Michigan’s auto insurance laws are stalled at the state Capitol.
That’s after Republican House Speaker Tom Leonard called a vote on his bills to reduce auto no-fault rates — and those bills went down in defeat.
WDET’s Jake Neher and Michigan Public Radio’s Cheyna Roth talk about a pattern that is emerging from Republican leadership in Lansing.
“(Leonard) did this previously with the income tax vote — that bill that would get rid of the state’s income tax,” says Roth.
“He put it up there, he didn’t get enough votes from his own party to get it passed.”
“It seems like once is something that happened — twice, you’re starting a trend.”
