  • Affinity Group Programs Save Money for Hard Working Californians
  • SACRAMENTO, Calif — The following statement is in response to regulations on affinity group auto insurance discount programs released today by the California Department of Insurance.  This statement can be attributed to Mark Sektnan, vice president for state affairs for the American Property Casualty Insurance Association. 

    “Affinity group auto insurance discount programs have been used in California for 30 years and are offered to consumers in 48 states.  Currently, millions of hard-working Californians save money on their auto insurance every month because of these programs.  We need to closely review the new regulations proposed by the California Department of Insurance to determine how they will impact insured consumers.  Our concern remains that these proposed changes will eliminate a discount auto insurance program used by millions of Californians struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing high cost of living in California.”
