Sen. MacDonald comments on MCCA assessment increase

LANSING, Mich. — After the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) announced on Wednesday that its assessment to auto insurance companies will increase by $28 on July 1 from $192 to $220, Sen. Michael D. MacDonald, R-Macomb Township, issued the following statement:

“This nearly 15 percent increase is just another example of the long-overdue need in Michigan for serious reform that will reduce car insurance rates while also continuing to ensure that accident victims receive the medical care they need.

“Drivers in Michigan are currently paying the nation’s highest car insurance rates. Our sky-high auto insurance costs are one of the top issues I hear about from Macomb County families, and I am proud the Senate made finally tackling this problem as its top legislative priority.”
