March 28, 2012 - The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today directed Champion's Auto Ferry, Inc. to keep its current rates in effect until further order of the Commission.

The MPSC will hold an evidentiary hearing on the proposed rate increase at 9 a.m. on April 10 in Constitution Hall in Lansing.  The evidentiary hearing will allow the MPSC to investigate whether the company's proposed rate increase is justified.
