Governor Brown Signs Historic Measure to Reject Iran Trade

This week Governor Brown signed a historic measure that prohibits California-based insurance companies from scoring indirect investments in Iran. As a member of Jewish Public Affairs Committee of California (JPAC), the largest single-state coalition of Jewish organizations in the nation, Federation's Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) participated in advocacy efforts in Sacramento that supported this legislation. Our efforts enabled our collective Jewish voice to be heard and make a real and lasting difference in policy. The bill passed critical votes in the Assembly and Senate despite objections from the insurance industry. We are proud to share that California is a national leader in this legislation.
