States as Innovators

On September 29, 2016, California became the latest state to enact a retirement program for private sector workers. It joins Connecticut (2016), Maryland (2016), New Jersey (2016), Oregon (2015), Washington (2015), Illinois (2015), and Massachusetts (2012) already implementing their own programs. Since 2012, at least 30 states have considered proposals to study or establish state sponsored plans.
