Protestors gather outside of Senate Majority Leader Shirkey's business in Jackson
Protesters met Monday outside a business run by Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey.
The crowd gathered in Jackson to call for changes to Michigan’s new auto insurance law that recently took effect.
Keith Mixer voiced concerns that, under the new law, insurance companies rather than accident survivors would most benefit from a catastrophic claims fund.
“What they’re doing is they’re privatizing the profits and socializing the losses. And all the taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay to support me when I bought an insurance policy.”
Last week Shirkey said he was still collecting information to decide whether to make changes to the new insurance law.
Critics worry fee cuts to home providers will soon lead to the collapse of Michigan’s at-home healthcare system.
