  • California Assembly debates Secure Choice bill in August 2012

    After nearly two years of work, the California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Investment Board approved in March 2016 a slate of recommendations to the Legislature on what a state-managed plan should look like. Those were folded into pending legislation by Senate leader Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, with the goal of putting a bill to launch the program on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk this summer. In this debate over initial legislation on Aug. 31, 2012, Republican lawmakers denounced what they called a proposal for a "massive" government program, and Democrats argued a state retirement plan would fill "huge gap" for California residents.

  • Dan Walters: Big election, but most people 'could care less'

    The Sacramento Bee's Dan Walters is excited that for the first time in a long time Californians were actually treated to a full blown presidential campaign, with all nominees from both parties campaigning up and down the state. Despite California voters actually being treated like they mattered, it still seems as if most people 'could care less.'
