Voters To Learn of Prop 17 Car Insurance Surcharges
Judge Allen Sumner has upheld Attorney General Jerry Brown’s Official Title and Summary of Proposition 17, which warns rates will go up for drivers who don’t have continuous coverage.
In wake of the ruling, voters will now learn in the ballot pamphlet that Prop 17 will allow insurance companies to increase rates on California drivers based on their history of buying vehicle insurance.
Opponents and proponents pushed hard in court to change the Title and Summary of Proposition 17, as well as the argument and rebuttal wording.
Voter pamphlets help educate people and therefore can sway an election’s outcome.
