California State Assembly Committed To Addressing Insurance Crisis

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO, CA—Californians are facing an insurance availability crisis. Insurers are leaving the state, reducing coverage, and in many cases non-renewing, pausing or canceling policies altogether. 

This prompted the California State Assembly to respond, and a committed team of Caucus members has convened regularly in recent weeks, standing at-the-ready to assist the Insurance Commissioner in his authority to address the crisis.

Now, the Assembly must continue its work to protect and support the state’s homeowners and businesses, so that all Californians can access and retain comprehensive insurance coverage. 

As a next step, the Assembly will hold a series of public hearings this fall. They will focus on the key issues: access to comprehensive insurance coverage, wildfires and catastrophes, and understanding consumer and community perspectives and experiences as they navigate an often inaccessible and Byzantine insurance system that needs to be fixed.

“We hear loud and clear from our residents that access to insurance is a problem,” Assembly Speaker Robert Rivas said. “Our Caucus has been steadfast in putting consumers first, and I’m grateful for their dedication. Our mission has always been to ensure homeowners and businesses across California can access and retain comprehensive insurance coverage.”
