Updated 8/12/18.  Now there is legislation being drafted and in committee that may relieve PG&E and other public utilities in California from liability.  This proposed legislation affects every resident in California.  In-process legislation is always changing.  Try checking http://focus.senate.ca.gov/wildfirecommittee/  This site lists all the committee members and their contact information so that you can tell them what you think.  Phone calls are the strongest form of communication, more so than letters, emails, or petitions.

See the following for information on this proposed legislation:

Write and Call the Sponsors of the Bills
and the Senate Insurance Committee,
especially Committee Chair Steven Glazer

All Californians, not just disaster survivors, should contact their State legislators to support legislation that further protects disaster victims from insurers.  This is important for all Californians because fires and other catastrophic events (in addition to earthquakes and floods) are our “new normal.”

Legislators will take phone calls and mailed paper letters from citizens outside their district, but generally not emails from citizens who are not their constituents.  Find your State Legislator:  http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/

Proposed legislation changes as it goes through the approval process, so this is just the first step in reaching out to our elected officials.  NeighborsTogetherSR.com/Take-Action will attempt to provide updated information and further actions, but each constituent should always fact-check before taking action.  This information was developed by survivors and allies of the Oct 2017 Sonoma County fires and has not been endorsed by any elected official. We are a coalition of unpaid volunteers.
