Pender joins lawsuit against insurance hike

Another county from our area is joining in the fight against a huge hike in homeowners’ insurance rates. Pender County commissioners voted unanimously yesterday to join the lawsuit. New Hanover, Brunswick, Onslow and Carteret counties would also be affected by the hike; New Hanover county has already joined the lawsuit. The lawsuit is opposing a 30 percent homeowners insurance increase for coastal homeowners, which was recently approved by the North Carolina insurance commission.

What a bunch of crooks. They raise insurance rates across the board for everyone in this area. I've been paying my insurance on time, every month for 28 years and never once made a claim, but that doesn't matter. They're jacking mine up more. Just one more thing to make NC the worst state in the region to live in.
how is the Insurance Commission a "bunch of crooks"? They receive no benefit from the rate increase. Of course, if NC is the worst state in the region to live in -- your words, not mine, move. Go up north where the first thing out of a Yankee's mouth is to tell you how they do things up there.
