A new auto insurance reform plan could mean lower rates for Michigan drivers. The Gongwer News Service says Governor Rick Snyder and other officials gave details of the plan during a news conference Thursday.

Snyder says it would cut $125 from premiums for each vehicle in the first year. Rates after that would be set by the market.

The increase is a lot smaller than the 30 percent hike vehicle owners faced in 2012.

Reform has been proposed to curb insurance costs, some victims oppose limits to personal injury protection benefits
