2 1 The Daily Ter Heel Wednesday, December 6, 1978
By JIM HUMMEL '
An appeal filed by the N.C. Rate
Bureau and the N.C. Reinsurance
Facility, two insurance industry
advocates, has halted a plan by Insurance
Commissioner John Ingram to lower
automobile insurance rates for certain
groups of drivers.
The 106-page appeal filed on Nov. 27
with the state Court of Appeals will not
be reviewed for at least a year, according
to a Court of Appeals official. Ingram's
proposal, which would have gone into
effect Jan. 1, cannot be enacted until the
appeal is decided.
"We would like to see the present law
changed," said Byron Tatum, deputy
commissioner of the N.C. Department of
Insurance. Tatum said the companies can
continue to charge the higher rates
despite Ingram's order under present
"We are trying to get the law
appealed," Tatum said. "It was enacted
on Sept. 1, 1977 because we hadn't given a
rate increase for four years."
Ingram's order would lower car
insurance rates for drivers with less than
two years experience. The present
liability surcharge would have been
reduced from $74 to $37.
"We don't feel that Mr. Ingram's
proposals are appropriate," said John
Watkins, assistant manager of the N.C.
Rate Bureau, the agency which represents
the insurance industry on rate policy.
"Our main opposition is from an
economic standpoint, but there are also
changes in his plan that would not be
practical or possible."
Watkins was especially critical - -of
Ingram's proposal to bring the industry's
point system for traffic violations in line
with the state Motor Vehicles Division's
system. Presently, surcharges are
calculated on a separate insurance point
"We've got a good point system now."

said Paul Mize. general manager for the
Rate Bureau. "There is no way thejwo
systems could be brought together."
Tatum, however, said Ingram's plan
would result, in fewer complications.
"Under the Division of Motor Vehicles'
system, a person charged with drunk
driving has his license taken away but is
not assigned any points. What we want to
do is assign 12 points to the driver."
Under either system, drivers convicted
of traffic violations would have to pay
higher premiums. But under Ingram's
proposal, drivers with repeated violations
would pay more, while those with limited
violations would pay less.
Other provisions under Ingram's order
included an increase from 20 to 25
percent in the liability insurance discount
for farmers and a 5 percent increase in the
discount for families with more than one
car, from 15 to 20 percent.
The appeal is the latest skirmish in
Ingram's continuing battle with the
insurance industry over proposed
increases. In October, he rejected a plan
by the industry that called for a 5.6
percent overall increase in premium
payments. In April he opposed the
industry's 6 percent hike.
Industry officials have complained
they have to keep up with the rising costs
due to inflation. North Carolina
insurance rates are among the lowest in
the nation, according to insurance
I ngram was in Charlotte, Asheville and
Greenville this week speaking at
legislative committee hearings. He told
the committees that the law allowing the
industry to implement rate hikes despite
his orders should be repealed.
"Mr. Ingramaid that there4as been
$85 million in increases since the law took
effect last year." said Kenn Brown,
director of consumer services for the
Department of Insurance. "A number of
people spoke out against the taw,
including Ernest Messer, a member of the
General Assembly." Brown said.

Chatham won't sell land without hearing
RALEIGH (AP) Chatham County commissioners have adopted a
resolution stating that they won't sell any county land to the state for disposal of
PCB-contaminated soil unless a public hearing is held first.
Earl D. Thompson, commission chairperson, said both county residents and
state officials misinterpreted a Nov. 20 resolution by the board proposingtosell
a six-acre site of the Chatham County landfill to the state for disposal of PCBs.
He said residents thought the earlier resolution was commitment by the board,
and "it wasn't intended that way." .
Oil strike hurts Iran's economy
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) A spreading strike by oil workers trying to oust Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi cut Iran's oil output almost in half Tuesday,
threatening the economic base of the shah's embattled government.
Exiled opponents of the shah claimed, meanwhile, that anti-government
Iranians had taken control of the Persian Gulf port city of Bushehr after new
violence Monday night, but the report could not be confirmed here.
Webster fires agents for surveillance
WASHINGTON (AP) FBI Director William H. Webster said Tuesday he

action against 59 others. " . .

agent and suspend one for 30 days. AH four had supervisory responsibility,
Prices to jump at the pump
NEW YORK (AP) Motorists will be paying a couple of cents more for a
gallon of gasoline within a week because of the current tight supply of the fuel,
industry analysts predicted Tuesday.
The increase is expected to last as long as there is tightness in supply. The oil
companies estimate that the tight supply will last about a month, but some
experts say it will be longer. The oil companies and the Energy Department say
there is no gas shortage. V
