Response from survivors to Whitmer refund call
Family members of auto accident survivors are outraged by Governor Gretchen Whitmer's call for refunds from the M.C.C.A. fund.
Jim Howell is a former Republican state representative. His son was catastrophically injured in a car accident.
He says it's not a coincidence that it's an election year.
“This is nothing more than a political move, it's using the MCCA money to buy votes.”
Howell says the state Legislature and the Governor should fix the law - not take money away from a fund for injured people.
The new law is forcing the collapse of the long-term care industry for survivors, while hundreds have lost care so far.
