Capitol News: Teachers' Retirement System Votes to Divest Gun Stocks
The California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) has voted to begin
eliminating gun and ammunition manufacturers from its investment portfolio.
The Board vote followed the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary
School in Newton, Connecticut, which claimed the lives of students and faculty.
While CalSTRS does not have a large investment in these kinds of companies, its board members believe eliminating these connections was an important action for a system that
represents educators' retirement interests.
