While the new legislation has not reduced the actual cost of workers' compensation policies, it has prompted several insurance companies to re-enter the California market. August entry of an A-rated company to the California market marks the first time an A-rated company re-enters the California market and reflects a business sentiment that the new legislation will bring stability to the chaotic workers' comp market.
