California Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner recently joined Assemblymember Joel Anderson (R - El Cajon) to support AB 157, and to offer disaster preparation tips for all San Diego residents.

AB 157 would allow Cedar Fire survivors two additional years to rebuild their homes without their property taxes being reset. Under current law, fire survivors are allowed 5 years to rebuild before higher property taxes are set.

Poizner also advised all local homeowners to proactively prepare for fires and other potential disasters by conducting a home inventory and updating their insurance policies.

This year's wildfire season is already under way. The May 5 Jesusita Fire in Santa Barbara destroyed 8,700 acres and burned 80 homes to the ground.
