Supporters of a proposal to give state regulators power to reject health insurance rate increases say they are submitting 800,000 voter signatures to election officials in hopes of qualifying for the November ballot.

“We will give California voters the chance to decide their own fate in November and stop out-of-control health insurance premiums,” Consumer Watchdog President Jamie Court, whose group is sponsoring the initiative, wrote in an email to supporters Friday.
