Legislation to create a state retirement account program for private sector workers in California is now set for a key vote next week that will determine whether it goes to the floor for a full vote.
The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday will decide which bills from its "suspense file," including Senate Bill 1234, coauthored by Democratic Sens. Kevin de LeÃ³n and Darrell Steinberg, will advance. With Democratic leader Steinberg as a co-author, the measure is likely to go to the Senate floor for a vote.
