On Tuesday, RCRC Regulatory Affairs Advocate Staci Heaton testified before a joint legislative committee titled “Drought, Climate Change and Fire: How is the California Homeowners’ Insurance Market Responding?” 

The joint legislative committee on Emergency Management and Senate Committee on Insurance heard testimony from the statewide perspective, the frontlines, and the insurance industry itself.  Ms. Heaton represented both RCRC and the Insurance Subgroup of the California Tree Mortality Task Force, of which she is a member. 

RCRC Vice President External Affairs Justin Caporusso sat down with Ms. Heaton to discuss her testimony, and the overall issue in general in this week’s Rural Rundown podcast.
