Christy Woods

Director, State Government Relations

American Red Cross

"The American Red Cross is pleased to support SB 254, which intends to restructure aspects of the California Earthquake Authority’s financial and insuring capacity to greatly increase the funding available each year for seismic retrofits and other proactive mitigation measures, with the urgent goal of retrofitting 1,000,000 homes by the end of the year 2025, and helping all Californians be prepared for the next major California earthquake."

Rex D. Frazier


Seren Taylor

Senior Legislative Advocate

Personal Insurance Federation of California

"SB 254 would strengthen the California Earthquake Authority's (CEA) capital structure...Making the CEA more resilient is a priority for PIFC. Each PIFC member is a "participating insurer" in the CEA that paid a significant entry fee and retains a large ongoing contingent obligation to provide further capital in times of need." 

Cesar Diaz

Legislative Director, State Building and Construction Trades Council


"On behalf of the State Building and Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO, I write in support of SB 254 (Hertzberg). This bill would help spur critically needed earthquake retrofits in the residential housing market by bringing long-term financial stability to the California Earthquake Authority”
