My fellow Californians.....


Recommended Posts

Why in the world would the legislature created this "private corporation" to help people and then tell no one about it? Seems like it was set up to provide jobs for the people who are running it.

Better question is: Why would TAs who (if they sell travel in California or to Californians) are required to register with the Secretary of State as “Sellers of Travel” (and pay into the coverage pool) not inform their customers (who are California residents) of this service for which the TA is paying?

BTW, the only involvement of the California Legislature was/is to require formation of the TCRC and TA participation in it.

 

Apart from (but related to) this issue is the importance for any TA customer to confirm that any US-based TA you are considering using is registered in California AND Florida as a “Seller of Travel” so that you know they are answerable to some government authority.

As always, follow the money.  It's CA taxing another business for no benefit to the general public.

Wrong.

Though legislated into existence, TCRC Is a private company funded entirely by (operations/refunds) by qualified TAs required contributions and user application fees ($35).
