Looks like the could be increasing both our taxes and our insurance as a result of all the fires. From the Christian Science Monitor

Leaders in Sacramento are moving toward pushing some costs back to the local level. The governor proposed adding a surcharge onto all homeowners' insurance; the surcharge would be higher for those living in fire, flood, or earthquake zones. A budget conference committee adopted a version of the plan this week.

Stewart says it's a step in the right direction, though the risk assessment is so crude that it would encompass most California property owners. Better, he says, was a failed plan to target fees just on homeowners in state fire jurisdictions.

Thank you bardsfingertips. Nothing screams cronyism like a bill going from $300k to $1.3 mil, but people look at that and see the failure of privatization. Situations like this, and like Haliburton make baby Friedman cry
