Senate Constitutional Amendment 1 - No Secure Choice Bailout

February 27, 2017


SCA 1 would prohibit California taxpayer funds from being used to fund the newly created California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Program

Support Letters:

Issue Background:

SB 1234 (De Leon, 2016) created the Secure Choice Retirement Savings Program, a defined contribution, individual retirement account that mandates private employees participate through payroll deduction into a retirement savings account managed by the state. The program requires employees to contribute up to 8% of their salary into their newly established personal retirement plan. This constitutional amendment would prohibit the use of any taxpayer funds to be used toward the Secure Choice Program.
