House Bill 4397, No fault auto insurance reform “clean up” bill: Passed 33 to 4 in the Senate

To revise details of the no fault auto insurance reform bill signed into law in May (Senate Bill 1), in particular timing issues related to the implementation of the new law’s changes to minimum insurance coverage, and the customer discounts that those changes are intended to allow. This corrects provisions in Senate Bill 1 that would have required insurers to give customer discounts before the cost saving reforms required by the bill go into effect.

Senate Bill 150, Increase current year spending, fund wrongful imprisonment compensation: Passed 107 to 2 in the House

To authorize spending an additional $28.7 million during the current fiscal year on various state departments and programs. Among other items, the bill authorizes $5 million each for marijuana regulation and for state actions related to the 2020 federal census. It also includes $10 million to compensate wrongfully convicted prisoners that was originally in House Bill 4286. This money was line-item vetoed from that bill by Gov. Whitmer, because that was a “policy” bill, not an appropriation bill (which this bill is).
