House Republicans have an ambitious plan they say will keep Michigan on its path of recovery.

Car insurance reform is one part of the plan. House Speaker Tom Leonard says they want to reexamine Michigan’s no-fault system and find a way to reduce costs.   

“We’ve got a situation where folks simply can no longer afford auto insurance.”

Earlier efforts at no-fault reform drew fierce opposition.

House Republicans also have their eyes on repealing the state income tax, making the governor’s office and legislature subject to the Freedom of Information Act and job growth.
