Gov. George Deukmejian and state Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie, filing a joint brief with the state Supreme Court, took no stand Thursday on the constitutionality of Proposition 103 or its prescribed insurance rate rollbacks. Rather, they asked the court for guidance on how to interpret the measure if it is upheld, particularly with respect to what date any rollbacks that may be ruled valid are to be made effective.

The authors of two letters (Nov. 30) vilifying Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie are sadly misguided. Gillespie has a thankless job trying to implement one of the most poorly written initiatives in the history of California. The courts have ruled repeatedly that portions of Prop. 103 or regulations proposed to implement it are unconstitutional, deny due process or expropriate private property. Unfortunately, the issues have had to be settled one by one in the courts. Insurance companies, like other private businesses or citizens, are exercising their right to seek redress through the courts.

Regarding the article on Roxani Gillespie: I think it boils down to whether you can believe her or Ralph Nader. My money's on Nader; he has done more for the consumers of this country in areas of safety and support than this former insurance executive could ever imagine. We need to elect a commissioner who will truly represent the people of California. B. KAISER Los Angeles

After the latest court proceedings in the protracted legal battle over Proposition 103, Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie is free to grant the state's auto insurers a round of rate increases beginning in August, but seems to be indefinitely blocked from telling the companies to rebate any excessive premiums they collected in 1989.

Roxani Gillespie, California's insurance commissioner, states that it is now "a fair prediction that by and large" most Californians are "not going to get lower insurance rates." She further states that hearings on the reviews could take as long as 10 years. I have a suggestion for Gillespie: Roll back rates immediately, as mandated by a majority of the voters last November, and then proceed with the reviews. If the insurance companies win out--as they most assuredly will with her help--they can then raise their rates in 1999 to make up for the 10 years of rollbacks.

Doubts arose Tuesday over whether Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie can meet her goal of promulgating new regulations for the pricing of auto insurance by the end of this month. One of the members of a three-member panel appointed by Gillespie to seek compromise solutions for implementing provisions of Proposition 103 said it may take to the end of January to analyze data needed to make her decision.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge left Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie's freeze on auto insurance rate increases in effect until at least the end of November on Tuesday, telling the Farmers group of companies not to raise its rates on Nov. 1 as the company had planned. But Judge Miriam A. Vogel, in an ambiguous decision that left Gillespie and Farmers attorneys disagreeing over what had been ordered, said that on Dec.

In The Times editorial pages there was an article by Rosenfield and several letters from readers, all complaining about the way Roxani Gillespie has betrayed the intent of Proposition 103 (Aug. 31). I don't know about Rosenfield, but I believe it is likely that many of the persons who voted for 103 and are now disappointed at how it is not being implemented had also voted for George Deukmejian for governor. Since Gillespie is Deukmejian's appointee, these persons are simply getting what they deserve.
