Consumer group wants health insurance rates on 2012 ballot
Sacramento Bee

The consumer advocacy group Consumer Watchdog wants to take regulation of health insurance rates to Calfornia voters with a ballot initiative set for 2012.

The ballot measure would expand Proposition 103, which regulates auto and home insurance rates in California, to include health insurance rates. It would also roll back health insurance rates by 20 percent and give the insurance commissioner power to approve or reject rate increases.
