CARe Takes Concerns of Northridge Quake Victims to Sacramento

May 23, 2000

George Kehrer, executive director of Community Assisting Recovery Inc. (CARe), a nonprofit organization dedicated to getting property owners into safe buildings following the 1994 Northridge earthquake, will be in Sacramento today to discuss the continued victimization of the quake survivors with Senators Martha Escutia and John Burton.

Kehrer has said he will provide evidence of the continuing problems of the inadequacies of both the insurance companies and California Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush to provide full and fair recovery benefits to homeowners who were victims of the 1994 earthquake. In addition, he will present documentation of violations of the Fair Claims Practices Act and the California Code of Regulations Section 2695, many of which were allegedly unenforced by Quackenbush.

CARe is optimistic about Senator Burton’s bill, SB 1899, which will allow an additional year to remedy problems policyholders encountered through denials of their claims based on the implementation of a one-year statute of limitation.
