State Fund Issues First Dividend In Over Ten Years VACAVILLE, CA --- State Compensation Insurance Fund (State Fund) began issuing dividend payments to eligible policyholders—the first time in a decade. The $50 million dividend disbursement will be paid to qualifying policyholders on the 2011 policy year. “We believe the dividend can and should function as a way to return value to responsible policyholders; it is a down payment on our commitment to help California employers manage the cost of their workers’ compensation insurance,” said Tom Rowe, State Fund President and CEO. State Fund last declared a dividend in 2001, which was more than $92 million. Since its inception in 1914, State Fund has paid more than $4.9 billion in dividends to policyholders—a re-

The plan will apply to policies renewing or incepting on or after September 1, 2012. Although manual rates will increase for some classifications, the rate filing calls for a zero net increase in overall rates. The move will expand State Fund’s rate ranges, improving the organization’s ability to provide the right price for the right risk—a key component in its commitment to help California employers manage the cost of insurance. State Fund underwriters will be able to start quoting under tiered rating August 1, 2012. “This rate filing is an important step in improving our ability to fulfill our mission,” said Tom Rowe, State Fund President and CEO. “State Fund’s role in California’s

TIRE WEAR The condition of your tires is one of the most important mechanical factors in vehicle safety. There are four ways you can improve the safety and performance of your tires. Keep tires properly inflated. Check them at least monthly to notice if tire pressure appears to be getting low. Incorrect tire pressure can cause uneven tire wear, poor handling, excessive heat build up, and possible tire failure. Check your vehicle manual for recommended tire pressures. If you have new tires installed, check their pressure. Recommended tire pressures can vary depending on the brand of tire. When you check tire pressure, do so the first thing in the morning for an accurate reading. Driving the car heats up the tires and changes their pressure. Rotate tires to increase life. Follow the rotation schedule in your car’s owner’s manual. Keep tires balanced and aligned. Improperly balanced tires can produce an uneven ride that can result in poor handling. Defective alignment can cause excessive tire wear and the vehicle to pull to the side. Replace tires when the tread gets too low. What is too low? All tires have “treadwear indicators” built right into them. These indicators are molded into the bottom of the tread groves and will appear as “bands” when the tread depth reduces to the size of 1/16th of an inch. When the indicators appear in two or more adjacent grooves, the tire should be replaced. Look in your vehicle’s manual for more information. Usually the manual will have a picture showing what the tread wear indicators look like. Take a look at your tires on a regular basis. Have a professional check them out further if you have any doubts about their safety.

DESGASTE DE LAS LLANTAS El estado de conservación de sus llantas es uno de los factores mecánicos más importantes para la seguridad de su vehículo. Hay cuatro maneras en que usted puede mejorar la seguridad y el desempeño de sus llantas. Mantenga las llantas con la presión de inflado apropiada. Inspecciónelas por lo menos una vez al mes para ver si la presión de las llantas parece estar bajando. La presión incorrecta de inflado puede causar el desgaste irregular de la llanta, condiciones deficientes de manejo, acumulación de calor excesivo y la posible falla de la llanta. Consulte el manual de su vehículo para determinar las presiones recomendadas de inflado de las llantas. Si instala llantas nuevas a su vehículo, verifique la presión de las mismas. Las presiones recomendadas para las llantas pueden variar dependiendo de la marca de la llanta. Verifique la presión de inflado de las llantas como primera actividad del día para obtener una lectura exacta. La conducción del vehículo calienta las llantas y cambia la presión de las mismas. Rote las llantas para aumentar la vida útil. Siga la secuencia de rotación de llantas especificada en su manual de propietario del vehículo. Mantenga las llantas balanceadas y alineadas. Las llantas mal balanceadas pueden producir condiciones irregulares de manejo. El alineamiento defectuoso puede causar el desgaste excesivo de la llanta y hacer que el vehículo tire hacia un lado. Reemplace las llantas cuando el grabado presente un desgaste excesivo. ¿Cuánto es un desgaste excesivo? Todas las llantas tienen "indicadores de desgaste del grabado" incorporados en ellas. Estos indicadores están moldeados en el fondo de las ranuras del grabado y aparecerán como "bandas" cuando la profundidad del grabado se reduzca a 1/16 de pulgada. Cuando los indicadores aparezcan en dos ranuras adyacentes o más, se debe reemplazar la llanta. Consulte el manual de su vehículo para obtener más información. Usualmente el manual mostrará una fotografía de los indicadores de desgaste de la llanta. Observe sus llantas regularmente. Haga que un profesional las inspeccione si tiene cualquier duda acerca de la seguridad de las mismas.

Kalb’s Capitol Connection Q & A for Contractors By David Kalb & Shauna Krause, Capitol Services, Inc.

When a contractor finds a situation that defies understanding, who are you going to call? Over the years our readers have found answers here and learned plenty from the misfortune of others. We go in depth for our first contractor’s inquiry, and discover if your materials supplier can demand a large down payment?.. Q: We are looking for help in clarifying the license requirements for the following: One of our customers is upgrading their existing underground fire lines within their property. It is a large site with multiple buildings. The new lines for this portion of work would tie into existing underground fire lines and run to either an exterior fire hydrant or exterior post indicator valve (PIV). At no time would we be installing the line to the interior of the building or altering any of the existing interior fire or alarm systems. It is strictly underground water piping, valves, vaults, and fire hydrants. In this case would a class “A” (General Engineering) license be sufficient for the work or would a “C-16” license be required? Our problem is that the City is telling us we must have the “C-16” class. For your information, we also hold a “C-34” classification. Thank you for your time
