STATE : Prop. 103 Supporters Sue Gillespie

From Times Wire Services

Supporters of Proposition 103 said they are filing suit today against Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie to force her to abide by statutory provisions of the insurance reform measure.

The suit was being filed in Sacramento Superior Court on behalf of Voter Revolt, the group that campaigned for the proposition, the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP and a group called the Prop. 103 Insurance Action Commission Intervention Team.

“The whole history of Commissioner Gillespie’s implementation of Prop. 103 has been an attempt to delay, subvert, undermine,” said Conway Collis, a member of the state Board of Equalization and chairman of the intervention team.
