      Dianda talks possible no-fault policy changes

      State representative Scott Dianda is making his way through the Copper Country this week discussing the current no-fault auto insurance policies and changes being proposed to the policy in the state house.

      Changes are being proposed in to the current no-fault policy to see if costs could be lowered for insurance.

      Dianda said he doesn't think that proposals guarantee there won't be more an increase in costs down the road. Dianda said his main concern is perfecting the no-fault law and keeping insurance costs low.

      â??What we have right now is a very high premium insurance in our state,â?? he said. â??I just believe that there is some fraud that we need to look at to get the costs down for the consumer because that's what it all comes down to is the fact that we are paying a very high premium, and I just want to make sure that there's a definite value to what we're paying and we're not paying for something that's costing us down the road.â??

      Dianda will hold another meeting Wednesday in Baraga in the village of Lâ??Anse chamber room at 1 p.m. and another in Crystal Falls in the Iron County courthouse at 6:30 p.m.
