Senate passes bill lowering car insurance rates


MADISON (WKOW) -- Some lawmakers are looking to drive down your car insurance rate.

The bill which the Assembly had passed, got the go-ahead from the Senate Tuesday.

Insurance would still be mandatory under the Republican bill, but it would reduce the minimum coverage for liability and uninsured drivers insurance.

The bill would wipe out higher minimums Democrats approved in 2009. Republicans maintain those levels have made car insurance more expensive.

Most of the changes took effect in 2010 after more than 20 years of no changes.

Walker is expected to sign the bill, and the changes would start 6 months later.
