Press Conference: Key Public Officials Say NO to Auto No-Fault Reform
Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson presents a unified opposition against Michigan Auto No-Fault reform; calling the proposed legislation, "A pro-insurance industry, anti-victim piece of legislation".
In his comments, Mr. Patterson says that the 17 billion dollar fund, which was created by drivers and is used for caring for victims of catastrophic auto accidents, is sustainable and growing.
He articulates specific problems with the proposed legislation and suggests that it was written only in the interest of insurance companies.
Wayne Co. Executive Robert Ficano, Macomb Co. Executive Mark Hackel and Thomas Stallworth III representing the Detroit caucus, were also present; as were members of CPAN and representatives from the health care sector.
