Insurance Industry Watching Commissioner Race Closely
The insurance industry, as well as employers and labor groups, is keeping a close eye on the race for state insurance commissioner. Industry representatives say they want the next commissioner to get up to speed quickly, respond faster to rate filings and offer more innovative policies. The California Labor Federation has endorsed Assembly member Dave Jones (D-Sacramento), and Assembly member Mike Villines (R-Clovis) has nabbed the endorsements of a couple of taxpayer groups.
