Lawsuit Says Voter Guide Statements Incorrect

August 1, 2012

Proponents of the vehicle insurance discount initiative on the November ballot say California’s voter guide statements on Proposition 33 are inaccurate.

The Proposition 33 campaign has filed a Sacramento lawsuit saying the state attorney general and opponents of the initiative submitted inaccurate statements for the official voter pamphlet.

The proposition, backed financially by Mercury insurance chairman George Joseph, would allow motorists to change insurance companies and continue to receive the loyalty discount they got from their former company.

The suit says the pamphlet language is likely to prejudice voters against the initiative.

The Los Angeles Times reported the voter pamphlet suggests illegal price fixing by stating Proposition 33 would allow insurance companies to set prices.

The attorney general’s office says the summary is fair and accurate.
