Michigan Bill Banning Insurer-Owned Shops Passes House


Michigan’s insurer-owned repair shop legislation (H.B. 4778) has passed
the House of Representatives. The bill, introduced in May 2007, would
ban insurance companies from owning repair facilities in Michigan. The
legislation would also prohibit insurers from developing a list of
preferred shops or in any other way conveying to an insured information
regarding which repair facility the insured should use for repairs.

“Michigan legislators have heard the concerns of collision shop
owners,” said Automotive Service Association (ASA) spokesman Bob
Redding. “Insurer-owned shop legislation has been tested all the way to
the U.S. Supreme Court with the Texas insurer-owned shop law. This bill
is good for consumers, small businesses and jobs in local communities.”

ASA is encouraging its members to contact Michigan state senators to push for the bill’s passage.
