Detroit businessman Dan Gilbert says he could bring back a ballot proposal to overhaul to state’s auto insurance, if the state Legislature doesn’t do anything about it soon. ";s:

A lot of people have tried – and failed – to make significant changes to Michigan’s auto insurance system. Michigan drivers pay some of the highest premiums in country. Enter Detroit businessman Dan Gilbert. The billionaire chairman of Quicken Loans says he’s ready to take the issue to the voters in the form of a ballot proposal, if the state Legislature doesn’t take action soon.

Detroit Free Press columnist Nancy Kaffer talks to Michigan Radio's Morning Edition host Doug Tribou about Gilbert’s plans.
