Position Papers
First, Do No Harm!
I've seen what's been done in California and other states and I won't make the same mistakes.
Reform the Conservation and Liquidation Office
The California State Auditor says that the Conservation and Liquidation Office has done an abysmal job in its single task of managing failed insurance companies. I have done this several times and know how to fix the problems.
Reduce Administrative Bloat to save $100 million
The Insurance Department budget has increased from $28 million in 1988 to about $150 million today. I can reduce that by at least $100 million without reducing the effectiveness of the Insurance Department
