California state lawmakers have introduced a bill that would force the state to drop its pension investments in any contractors or other companies involved in building President Donald Trump’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

On March 17, U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested proposals for “border wall prototypes.”

Assembly Bill 946 would require the California Public Employee Retirement System and the California State Teachers Retirement System — the two largest public pension funds in the nation — to liquidate investments in any company involved with the wall’s construction within a year.
