Sacramento, Calif. – On February, 17 2022 Senator Lena A. Gonzalez (D-Long Beach) introduced SB 1173 that would prohibit the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) from investing in fossil fuel companies, and require that they divest any current investments by 2027.
