LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan House is wasting no time to consider Senate-approved changes to the state’s auto insurance law.

The Republican-led House Insurance Committee held a hearing Tuesday on legislation that cleared the Senate last week. Another hearing is planned for Wednesday. It is unclear when votes could occur.

Backers say the GOP-backed measures would curtail costs without capping benefits in the only state to require unlimited medical benefits for those severely injured crashes. Opponents say drivers wouldn’t be guaranteed lower premiums and patients could receive less care in their homes.

Car insurers complain that they pay have to more than health insurers do for medical care, resulting in higher premiums for motorists. Auto insurance legislation has stalled previously over objections from health providers.
