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.
