Insurance Commissioner Promises Hearings

Order Reprints

March 27, 2019—Thirty days ago, Consumer Watchdog and ten other organizations petitioned the insurance commissioner of California, Ricardo Lara, to stop insurance companies' discrimination against low-income drivers and communities of color based on their education or occupation.

On Monday, commissioner Lara's office issued a statement saying he wanted to 'hear from all stakeholders regarding the allegations' and would 'call for a public hearing' but did not commit to stopping the practices – which violate California's voter approved insurance laws – or to a timetable for action.
