The Roth is already nondeductible, so it means nothing to that vehicle.
In otherwords, I can contribute $3000 this year, being a Californian?
As the law currently reads, you cannot. Under current law, contributing $3,000 to your ROTH IRA would open it up to disqualification and penalties from California.
There are tax gurus out there that suggest you contribute the first $2,000 to your existing IRA, and put the next $1,000 into a new IRA, simply to keep the amounts segregated until it becomes clearer what California will do.
