In 2019, a total of 19 bills signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will become law in 2020. There are 2 more pieces of legislation signed by former Gov. Rick Snyder in 2018, that will also have effective dates in 2020. Medicaid work requirements, minimum wage increases, the legalization of online gaming and sports betting, and auto insurance reform are some of the notable laws taking effect this year.

July 1, 2020 will see the state’s new auto insurance law taking effect that will significantly overhaul Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance policy. According to Moss & Colella, the Michigan Person Injury Lawyer team, there will be a major change in the personal injury protection coverage as it will allow the residents to change their level of personal injury protection, or PIP, coverage or opt-out all together if they’re senior citizens or have existing health insurance that covers auto-related injuries. Then there are other four levels of coverage available that give unlimited coverage, $500,000, $250,000 and a minimum $50,000 option for some Medicaid recipients. The amount of auto insurance savings will completely depend on the level of coverage drivers will choose to go with.

January 1st saw the state’s minimum wage jump from 20 cents to $9.65 while the tipped wage increased to $3.67. In 2018 GOP lawmakers had adopted and amended a citizen-led minimum wage ballot proposal which will affect the increase in the minimum wage to $12.05 by 2030. Also on the same date the new Medicaid work requirements kicked in for most able-bodied adults receiving healthcare benefits through the state’s Healthy Michigan Program.

Thus the beneficiaries, between the ages of 19 and 61, are now required to report per month for at least 80 hours of workforce engagement, such as working or job training. Affected residents have received notices in the mail from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
