LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 36, Hueso. Internet Web site: workers’ compensation insurers: workers’ compensation data.
Existing law requires every insurer doing business in this state to make and file with the Insurance Commissioner annual and quarterly financial statements, as prescribed.
This bill would, beginning July 1, 2014, require the Department of Insurance to include on its Internet Web site a dedicated Internet Web page that includes workers’ compensation data, statistics, and reports covering insurers. The bill would require the department to only use data already collected by the department or the Department of Industrial Relations, and authorize the department to provide on its Internet Web site direct links to relevant information on other Internet Web sites.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 901 is added to the Insurance Code, to read:

901.
 Beginning on July 1, 2014, the department shall include on its Internet Web site a dedicated Internet Web page that includes workers’ compensation data, statistics, and reports covering insurers, including, but not limited to, claims loss data, expenses, and financial reports. The department shall only use data already collected by both the department and the Department of Industrial Relations, and may provide on its Web site direct links to relevant information on other Internet Web sites. Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize the release of information protected by other applicable law.
