Every car insured in Michigan is accessed a $192 fee by the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA). How is that fee determined? We don’t know because the legislature has exempted it from Freedom of Information Act requests.
The MCCA was created by the state legislature in 1978 but it’s board is controlled by insurance companies. How can we talk about fixing the nations most expensive auto insurance when the numbers are hidden from the public? Our representatives could fix this, but just like how the legislature itself is exempt from FOIA, they have chosen to keep their constituents in the dark.
When money talks, voters walk.
