California board diversity mandate spreads to other states, Washington

Article here. Excerpt:

'California’s mandate that boards of directors overseeing public companies include women is catching fire as states including Illinois, New York and New Jersey, as well as lawmakers in Washington, consider similar rules to promote diversity, government officials told CQ Roll Call.

But efforts to establish requirements for other underrepresented groups such as African Americans and Latinos or Latinas, however, are encountering opposition from business groups and skeptics who say the measures either aren’t needed or aren’t inclusive enough.

The California law, SB 826, passed late last year amid predictions a court challenge would halt it. So far, no lawsuit has materialized.'
