April 12, 2022 Good Morning Truckee: 2022 California Legal Update + Fire Insurance

March 22, 2022


The Truckee Chamber is excited to announce that Good Morning Truckee is going back to being a LIVE in-person event! The event will be held at Truckee Town Hall upstairs in the Council Chambers. Additionally, it also will be available for online viewing through Zoom, or watch the livestream at tahoetruckeemedia.org or on Suddenlink Channel 18, starting at 7:30 am. All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing at a later date.

Speakers include Ethan Birnberg from Porter Simon and Tony Commendatore from Aegis Insurance Markets. These speakers were originally scheduled for March and have been rescheduled for this April 12th Good Morning Truckee.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a whopping 770 new laws in 2021, which means lots of new rules (or altered rules) went into effect on January 1, 2022. Attorney Ethan Birnberg from Porter Simon will highlight some of these new laws, discuss recent legal developments concerning business and housing aspects, and shed some light on what to expect in the next year.

The second topic will be fire insurance. It’s said there’s no such thing as fire season in the West anymore – it’s fire season all year. It’s a growing problem for those who live in areas where the risk of fires grows worse every year. How do you insure your home as insurance companies pull out of the market and temporary moratoriums expire? Insurance expert Tony Commendatore from Aegis Insurance Markets will provide an update on the status of fire insurance in our area.

Stump speeches – events or information of interest to the community – can be announced at the end of the event. Announcements should be no longer than 1-2 minutes.

Good Morning Truckee is a community forum to provide timely, relevant information on a variety of topics held the second Tuesday of every month in person or virtually from 7:00-8:30 am.

These events are very popular and a great way to meet other community members. Whether you are new or have lived here for years, hearing from our leaders in the community is an enjoyable way to stay on top of important issues, connect and engage. One of the great things about living in a small community like Truckee is that you can personally know your leaders and work with them to make a difference.
