The Los Angeles Times published an editorial today in support of Assemblyman Kevin de Leon's plan to provide workers who are not eligibile to participate in an employer sponsored plan access to a safe retirement savings product.
This is obviously a major boost to New America's efforts to create a voluntary, portable, low-cost, high quality retirement account structure for all workers in California. See this previous post for more.
Stay tuned for updates as this important (and ambitious) proposal travels through the state legislature en route (we hope!) to the Governor's desk.
