At its core, California's Proposition 33, amounts to little more than a penalty on drivers who may have, for whatever reason, gone without auto insurance for some period of time. The measure would allow auto insurers to charge a premium on drivers buying insurance for the first time or reentering the market after a lapse in coverage.
In addition to reversing the very rules imposed on auto insurance companies by the voter-approved Prop. 103 some 24 years ago, this measure amounts to a penalty on anyone who may have left the California insurance market, including military personnel serving out of state, students attending school elsewhere, workers transferred out of state and the like.
Vote NO on Prop. 33.
