California official grills insurers
Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi sat insurance companies on the hot seat yesterday, asking them if they can do better when establishing how much coverage a home gets.
At an investigatory hearing in San Diego, the state's insurance regulator heard seven hours of testimony focused on "underinsurance" – a complaint from last October's fire victims who say their policies didn't pay enough to rebuild their homes.
