State Senate OKs Contractor Bill; Assembly and Newsom Approval Likely
With state Senate approval, the bill regulating contractor employment is expected to clear the Assembly, and Gov. Gavin Newsom has signaled that he'll sign it. It includes postponements for newspapers, physical therapists and the timber industry, among others. It's important to the IT industry because it deals directly with independent contractors.
