Cost Of Michigan Car Insurance Has Increased…

Starting TODAY, Michiganders will be paying more for their auto insurance!

The Michigan Catastrophic Claims Associations – which reimburses insurers for personal injury protection benefits – is increasing the annual fee to $220 per year…

This is a $28 increase from last year!

The association said the increase is required to cover an increasing number of claims, increased medical costs, and lower investment earnings.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer recently passed a bill that allows drivers to determine how much personal injury protection they want to pay for…

However, that will not begin until July 2020.

What do YOU think of the price increase?

Lil Nas X Comes Out As Gay

Lil Nas X has come out as gay on the final day of Pride Month!

When he posted the video for his song “C7osure” he wanted fans to really listen to the lyrics and said, “some of yall don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more, but before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to “C7osure.”

After the post, he added a rainbow emoji.

After that tweet came another that featured his album artwork, which zoomed in on a rainbow image that’s included in the album artwork.

Nas X said about the image, “Deadass thought I made it obvious.”

Did YOU know that Lil Nas X was gay before the announcement?

If a local government has not passed a local ordinance for fireworks, Michigan state law allows for fireworks to be used all year long!

Other dates include New Year’s Eve and the Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend.

Each year, fireworks can only be lit on July 5 if it falls on a Friday or Saturday; this year, July 5 is on a Friday.

Violations of local ordinances and state laws could result in a $1,000 civil fine per violation.

Do YOU light your own fireworks or do you go to a public fireworks display?
