Survivors of devastating wildfires like those in September 2020 will have the time they need to rebuild without losing insurance coverage, the result of a bill that Governor Kate Brown signed into law on Friday. Representative Pam Marsh was the chief sponsor of House Bill 3272, which was a response to concerns that arose in the wake of the Almeda Fire. With many property owners waiting on the gradual state-managed cleanup operation to finish before they could begin rebuilding, some risked losing the funds that they would need to complete the task due to a ticking clock on their plans. "After the Almeda Fire, it became clear that there are significant gaps in some insurance policies that leave policyholders struggling at the very moment when they need help," Marsh said earlier this month.
