California teachers fund moves to divest from firearms
from The Associated Press via ABC News
The nation's largest teacher pension fund took the first step toward divesting from companies that make guns and high-capacity ammunition magazines that are illegal in California. State Treasurer Bill Lockyer made a motion to begin the divestment process after pension fund officials determined that the fund invests in the owner of a company that manufactured one of the weapons used in the Connecticut school shooting. The California State Teachers' Retirement System's investment committee unanimously approved the motion.
