    “Californians whose homes have been destroyed totally or partially by wildfires should not get hung up in insurer red tape when trying to put their lives back together.”

    “Our Wildfire Survivors Insurance Recovery legislative package strengthens the laws protecting wildfire survivors in the insurance claims process and will improve their chances for recovery.”

    Good old Demagogue Dave.

    I’m just surprised the press release didn’t depict him dressed as Luke Skywalker and holding an activated lightsaber aloft while standing over a vanquished CGI Jabba the Hutt wearing a Trump wig and labeled “Insurance Companies”.

      I’ll just have to assume you’re not clear on the meaning of the word. You see, it’s not the action, but the manner which it’s announced.

      I have not seen articles in California newspapers regarding policyholders “hung up in insurer red tape”, nor have I read about wildfire survivors bemoaning their fate regarding “their chances for recovery”.

      Perhaps you can post links to newspaper articles chronicling these issues instead of making presumptuous ageist insults?

      Thanks in advance.

        Perhaps the State of California can be the insurer of last resort when people cannot afford to rebuild or pay their outrageous premiums. Just pass another tax increase. That should do the job.

          CA is contributing to Global Warming by not preventing wildfires! Carbon tax them! {sarcasm}

          Where are you pulling “outrageous premiums” out of, Agent?

      No links, SacFlood? That’s okay; I didn’t expect any.

    There is a real solution to mitigating the frequency and the intensity of catastrophic wildfires and it will help insurers and policy holders both:

      fabulous idea of using our natural heritage (the wild horse) to mitigate of ground / fuel. solves two problems.
      How wonderful would it be to see a wild horse heard in the forest..(I have seen same in Colorado) .

    Simpson’s link to article about using our own ‘wild horses’ is brilliant. Rather than killing our heritage in the Nevada deserts (where ranchers want their cattle to eat the sparse pickings) let’s round them up and reintroduce them into some southern California forests.. and or some of those in northern Ca and Oregon. It solves two problems. I fear no one will do this as our government will ‘sit on their Hands ‘ too often.
