Insurance Regulation Measure Qualifies for Nov. 2014 Ballot
An initiative -- sponsored by Consumer Watchdog -- that would give the state insurance commissioner the authority to approve or reject health insurance rate changes has qualified for the November 2014 ballot. Proponents of the measure had sought to qualify the initiative for this year's ballot, but election officials were unable to validate enough signatures by the June deadline.
