Los Angeles Times

A proposed voter initiative to require greater regulation of health insurance premiums in California has failed to qualify for the November ballot, according to the measure’s author.

Jamie Court, president of Consumer Watchdog, said he was told Thursday by the secretary of state’s office that a spot-check signature tally by county registrars of voters fell just short of the 110% or 555,236 needed to go before voters in the upcoming presidential election.
