It's All About Perspective, I Guess
BOSTON, Mass. -- The attorney general and the state Division of Insurance on Wednesday proposed steep cuts in Massachusetts’s auto insurance premiums that could save some drivers between $85 and $180 annually on their bills, depending on the proposal.
Attorney General Tom Reilly proposed an 18.2 percent rate cut that would reduce the average driver's policy by about $180 per year.
