(SACRAMENTO) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer issued the following statement on the California State Auditor Report issued today regarding the Department of Insurance:

“The State Auditor’s report adds to the public understanding about recent settlement and enforcement practices in the Department of Insurance and outlines serious problems under the administration of former Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush. This reinforces many of the findings we made in bringing legal action against the nonprofit California Research and Assistance Fund, which was set up to receive the settlement payments from insurance companies. While we pursue our legal action and criminal investigation of past Insurance Department practices, it is encouraging to see new Insurance Commissioner Harry Low committed to improving accountability and other changes cited in the legislative audit report."
