Advisory - California leaders urge legislature to adopt bills to protect wildfire survivors

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, Senator Bill Dodd, and Senator Mike McGuire are standing up for consumers and calling on the legislature to support three proposed bills designed to strengthen consumer protections for wildfire survivors making insurance claims who struggle to recover, rebuild, and move forward. SB 894 (Dodd), SB 897 (McGuire) and SB 1291 (Dodd) would bring much needed relief for consumers and reforms to the insurance industry.

Commissioner Jones, Senator Dodd, and Senator McGuire will provide testimony at the Senate Insurance Committee hearing on these bills, facing hostile amendments designed to weaken consumer protections and stiff opposition from the insurance lobby. Wildfire survivors have been invited to attend the press conference before the hearing.
