SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Under some of the state laws taking effect with the new year, homeowners will have increased protections from foreclosure.
California also is studying whether to create the nation's first state-administered retirement savings program for private-sector workers, although it will take additional legislation before the program can be fully implemented.
