TWIA and Workman's Comp Insurance subsidies are examples of the Legislature utilizing it's power to make Law and its power of the public purse to provide insurance to some, at public expense, for damage caused by acts of God.

In my humble opinion the duty of our Legislature imposed by the Oath of Office, to insure our god given rights secured by our Constitution, mandates insurance for damage caused by Acts of the State.

State Actors who did not understand or had no regard for the contract clause in our Constitutions have created a claim that takes priority over any committment of the public purse to provide, or assist in providing, insurance for some for the acts of God.

The Legislature has chosen to make the State a self-insured entity and insure the damages caused by it's Officers and Employees. See Gov. Code Title 6. As a self-insured entity by legislative choice the legislature has a duty to pay for the damages caused by those who act in the name of the State. It's Officers and Employees.
