As the largest auto insurer in the state, State Farm has 3.3 million auto insurance policies in California, covering 13 percent of the auto insurance market, the DOI said. Under the newly approved reduced rates, California policyholders will save an average of about $66 per policy per year. Read the full article here courtesy of Insurance Journal.
