Urge senators to support installment payments for car insurance

The Maryland General Assembly has approved higher auto insurance premiums, which will make it more expensive for low-income families to buy insurance. Today, the Senate Finance Committee will vote on SB 401, which would change the way low-income people pay for their insurance through the Maryland Auto Insurance Fund (MAIF). Currently, users must make a large lump-sum payment in order to get coverage. SB 401 would allow them to instead pay via monthly installments.

Now that lawmakers have made insurance more expensive, isn't it only fair to make it easier for low-income Marylanders to pay for that coverage?

Contact Members of the Senate Finance Committee today and ask them to vote in favor of SB 401!
