On September 16, 2014, Assembly Bill No. 2734 (“AB 2734”) was signed into law. AB 2734 authorizes trusteed surplus to be reduced to not less than 30% of the assuming insurer’s liabilities attributable to reinsurance ceded by United States ceding insurers covered by the trust if the Insurance Commissioner expressly finds that appropriate circumstances justify a lower level of minimum required trusteed surplus. AB 2734 also reduces the period during which the Insurance Commissioner is prohibited from taking final action on an application for certification as a reinsurer from 90 days to 30 days after posting the required notice concerning receipt of the certification application.
