Milwaukee Dems try to end higher auto insurance rates in big cities with higher crime
Some Milwaukee Democrats are trying again to end the practice of setting higher auto insurance rates in places with dense populations and higher crime. Wisconsin drivers will be required to have auto insurance starting next year and Rep. Leon Young, D-Milwaukee, says his bill would make it affordable.
Gov. Jim Doyle vetoed a state budget measure in June that would have stopped using a driver's home Zip code as a factor in setting premiums.
