Governing California’s Insurance Industry: Priorities and Challenges
Insurance and the insurance industry play a pervasive role in California’s economy. The insurance industry covers 5.8 million homes and an additional 1.2 million renters, as well as the 24 million insured cars on California’s roads. It also employs hundreds of thousands of Californians, is the fourth largest contributor (through premium taxes) to California’s General Fund, and is a significant investor in municipal bonds issued by California municipalities.
This symposium will provide keen insight into the dedicated system governing the California insurance industry, define the priorities of the Legislature and the California Department of Insurance in governing the industry, and explore associated challenges. Our speakers, which include industry and consumer advocates, will describe their roles in the process, and their goals for their constituents. They will also discuss current issues of importance affecting California and Californians that you should be aware of.
