Eight states – California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington – have passed legislation to establish retirement savings arrangements for private sectors workers who currently lack access to plans through their employers.

On August 25, 2016, the White House and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced a final rule to allow states to create their own programs and issued a new proposed rule that would allow some larger cities to also establish such programs.
