Lawmakers demanding answers from Caltrans about freeway damage claim denials

California lawmakers are responding to a CBS News California investigation, which found that Caltrans damage claims from potholes and debris on California highways tripled in the first half of last year, as approval rates dropped by half. 

Now, lawmakers also want to know why Caltrans is denying so many damage claims and some are proposing legislation to fix the Caltrans damage claims process.
