California Bill Bars Insurers From Declining Fire Coverage

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Amid mounting cries of California homeowners being denied wildfire insurance in high-risk areas, lawmakers want to require insurance companies to cover all existing homes, as long as they meet new safety standards. The measure, coming after years of deadly fires causing insurers to turn down more customers, would also require insurance companies to give homeowners financial incentives for fire safety upgrades. Existing homes that meet a new state standard for “fire-hard...

Analyst Urges California To Reject Switch To Short Probation

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposal to sharply reduce the time a convict is under supervised release could wind up sending more criminals to jail or prison, the reverse of what he intends, the nonpartisan legislative analyst said Tuesday. It recommended that California lawmakers reject the idea. Newsom wants to set a maximum two-year limit on probation terms, down from five for felons and three for those convicted of misdemeanors.

Lawyers in Suit Seeking Trump’s DNA Accuse Him of Trying ‘to Stop the Truth From Ever Coming Out’

(NEW YORK) — Lawyers for a woman who has accused President Donald Trump of raping her in the 1990s told a court Tuesday he’s trying “to stop the truth from ever coming out” by attempting to delay her defamation lawsuit and her effort to get his DNA. Trump’s attorneys have asked a court to put writer E. Jean Carroll’s defamation case on hold until New York’s highest court rules — in a different suit — on whether the incumbent president can be sued in state courts. Trump denies Carroll’s alle...

Covered California Signups Rise After State Requires Coverage, Enhances Subsidies

(CNN) — California has reversed several years of slipping sign-ups on its Affordable Care Act exchange. The key was restoring the penalty for remaining uninsured and boosting financial help to pay for coverage — two state provisions that are new this year, said officials at the Covered California exchange. This led to a 1.6% increase in sign-ups, to 1.54 million people, on the state-run exchange for 2020. The boost was driven by a 41% jump in new customers, which offset an 8% decline in renewals...

Mike Bloomberg is not the lesser of two evils

Like the vast majority of Americans, I have been effectively disenfranchised in the last few presidential elections. In 2011, I moved to Washington, D.C., which is so heavily Democratic that any vote for president is totally meaningless — in 2016, Hillary Clinton won with 93 percent of the vote. But last year, I moved to famously swingy Pennsylvania, and suddenly I'm a full citizen again. (I'm already lording it over my friends from California and New York.)As I have written on many occa...
