California Governor Newsom’s Insurance Review Acceleration Plan Faces Potential Legal Challenges Amidst Industry Support

Governor Newsom’s administration introduced a plan to speed up California’s review of insurance price increases. It aims to address the state’s insurance issues quickly but faces possible legal challenges, according to the report of The Sacramento Bee.

Insurers argue that slow approval processes contribute to their losses from wildfires and climate change. Major insurance companies support the plan saying it’s crucial for stabilizing the market.

The plan requires the Department of Insurance to respond to price change requests within 120 days. Challenges from individuals or groups could prolong the process especially for large price hikes.

Consumer advocates criticize the plan suggesting more resources for the existing process would be better. The proposal’s future remains uncertain due to potential legal challenges.
