The California FAIR Plan insurance cooperative has been ordered to upsize its fire insurance policies. 

But yesterday …. the big insurance companies filed a lawsuit to block that order.

As many Malibu residents know only too well … every insurance company that operates in the state has to chip in to fund the FAIR Plan … according to its market share. 

Its basic policy covers fire but little else … and the state insurance commissioner has ordered the FAIR plan to provide a comprehensive homeowners insurance policy to homeowners who can’t get insurance elsewhere.

The state also ordered the FAIR Plan to double its coverage limit to 3 million dollars.

The plan says it is impossible for it to increase its coverage limits and keep its rates unchanged … as the state has ordered.

The insurance industry says selling comprehensive insurance through the FAIR Plan would be more expensive than what homeowners could purchase on their own … or through a FAIR plan plus supplemental policy.

State Insurance Commission Ricardo Lara said … in a statement …  

“I will fight for consumers against this industry-driven lawsuit. 

“Insurers can’t have it both ways; they cannot continue to cancel policyholders at an alarming rate, leaving them with the FAIR Plan as their only option, with woefully inadequate coverage.”


The annual free Household Hazardous Waste & E-Waste Recycling Roundup for Malibu area residents is today.

This is the annual event to get rid of household hazardous waste … and again this year … it’s important to remember that this is -NOT- for fire debris. 

Things like antifreeze, unused pharmaceuticals, car batteries, used motor oil, paint, pesticides, home-generated sharps waste, e-waste, and more. 

It’s a free and easy way to safely dispose of items that are too toxic to trash.

Organizers are asking residents not to take fire damaged material to this recycling Roundup.

Again that will be today… from 9 to 3.
