Michigan Chronicle Senior Editor Keith Owens, Oakland County Executive L. Brook Patterson and Charlie Beckham, group executive in charge of Detroit’s neighborhoods, discussed the future of D-Insurance lingering before the state legislature during taping of “Michigan Matters”.
The roundtable debated the high costs of auto insurance in Detroit and whether the pending legislation has a chance of being approved.
They also debated the GOP Presidential field and who might be next to drop out of the 2016 race for the White House.
Eric Poe, COO of CURE Auto Insurance, a longtime champion for reforming auto insurance rates in New Jersey and other places, also appeared on the show with David Christensen, of the Christen Law Firm in Southfield, to discuss D-Insurance.
Poe is working with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, who is supporting the legislation.
Though Christensen agreed auto insurance rates in the Motor City and other major urban cities were too high, he argued the legislation s written would not have the impact consumers hoped for in reducing rates.
Christensen advocated looking at other options to address the high costs of auto insurance in Detroit.
