Commissioner Proposes New Rules to Help Consumers Better Prepare for Wildfires

After hearing from many Californians about confusion over how insurance companies rate properties for wildfire risk, Commissioner Ricardo Lara proposed new rules. They would require insurance companies to provide a consumer with their property’s wildfire risk score, which must recognize a consumer’s mitigation actions that could improve their rating. Commissioner Lara will hold public prenotice workshops on March 30 and April 6. Following input from the public, he will begin a formal regulatory process leading to adoption of new rules.
