LANSING (WKZO) -- A House committee has approved sweeping changes to Michigan's medical benefits for auto accident victims.

In a party-line vote, the Republican-controlled House Insurance Committee approved capping lifetime medical benefits for auto victims at one-million dollars.  Thursday's vote came after the committee listened to two days of testimony from insurance industry executives.

The legislation would also require auto insurers to slash premiums for all drivers by 125-dollars next year.
