My Top 3 Priorities

  • Keep major California insurance companies in California to help create a competitive market to lower consumer rates. Several large such companies have left the state.
  • Stop insurance companies from redlining homes as fire-risk properties and not issuing new homeowners insurance.
  • Make State Insurance Department 's ratemaking process more efficient to reduce consumers rates.
