California’s governor is expected to sign into law a bill that critics say would make it difficult, if not impossible, for trucking companies in the state to use independent contractor owner-operator truck drivers.


If signed into law, Assembly Bill 5 “will put tens of thousands of owner-operator truckers, who service agriculture, retail and other industry sectors, out of business," said the California Trucking Association in a press release.

AB 5 originally passed the California State Assembly back in May, and was passed late in the evening Sept. 10 by the state Senate. It codifies last year’s Dynamex California Supreme Court decision into law, establishing an ABC test to determine status of an independent contractor that would all but eliminate the owner-operator model in the state.


According to published reports, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has signaled support for the measure, which would take effect on Jan. 1.

It started with Dynamex

New York tried something similar and I don’t think it ever happened.

But lately the way California has been...seems like all a bull has to be is stamped STUPID AS SHIT and they’ll pass it.

Let them have at it. Eventually, and not too far in the future, these idiots will add the straw that breaks the camel's back. It wasn't too long ago the last generation of these morons wanted to ban trucks in the LA area and before that ban diesel as a motor fuel.
