CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1511


Introduced by Committee on Insurance

February 19, 2021


An act to amend Section 12921.2 of the Insurance Code, relating to insurance.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1511, as introduced, Committee on Insurance. Insurance: public records.
Existing law generally regulates insurance and creates the Department of Insurance, headed by the Insurance Commissioner. Existing law requires all public records of the department and the commissioner that are subject to disclosure under the California Public Records Act to be available for inspection and copying, as specified, at the offices of the department in the San Francisco Bay area, in the City of Los Angeles, and in the City of Sacramento.
This bill would eliminate the reference to an office in the San Francisco Bay area and instead refer to the department’s offices in the City of Oakland, the City of Los Angeles, and the City of Sacramento. The bill would remove an obsolete cross-reference.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 12921.2 of the Insurance Code is amended to read:
