Calif. Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, Consumer Groups Condemn Anti-Consumer Legislation

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones will be joined by the Consumer Federation of California, Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety, and the Automotive Machinists Union at a press conference Weds. Aug. 29 in Sacramento to denounce last-minute, gut and amend efforts to pass bills such as AB 1098 (Assembly Member Curt Hagman) and SB 1460 (Senator Leland Yee). These bills would essentially terminate a 20-year consumer protection standard that would allow insurers—without any checks or balances—to force repair shops to use aftermarket parts on consumers’ automobiles in the event of a collision and shift warranty coverage from insurers to lesser known suppliers or distributors. Additional protections would also be lost or denied to consumers.
