§ 1063.73 CIGA Authorization in Event of Member Insolvency

In the event CIGA determines that the insolvency of one or more member insurers providing workers' compensation insurance will result in covered claim obligations for workers' compensation claims in excess of CIGA's capacity to pay from current funds, the board, in its sole discretion, may by resolution request the Bank to issue bonds pursuant to Article 8 (commencing with Section 63049.6) of Chapter 2 of Division 1 of Title 6.7 of the Government Code to provide funds for the payment of the covered claims and the adjusting and defense expenses relating to those claims. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, CIGA is hereby authorized to borrow proceeds of the bonds to provide for those purposes. CIGA may request the Bank to issue bonds pursuant to Article 8 (commencing with Section 63049.6) of Chapter 2 of Division 1 of Title 6.7 of the Government Code. CIGA shall provide the commissioner with a copy of the request and the commissioner may, within 30 days of receipt of the request, modify, cancel, or require a delay in the requested issuance. The proceeds of bonds issued for workers' compensation benefits may be used by CIGA to reimburse funds advanced or temporarily loaned from other categories to fund workers' compensation claims.
