Taxi companies back regulation reform led by state Senator Ben Hueso
Last Updated: 67 days ago
Taxi companies are backing newly elected state Senator Ben Hueso's efforts to change cab regulations.
Hueso's brothers own a cab company.
The Sacramento Bee says Hueso's bill would make cab drivers independent contractors instead of cab company employees.
According to the newspaper, Hueso's bill has angered his supporters in the labor unions and revived a long- time debate over whether a legislator should introduce a law to which he may have personal or financial ties.
Do you think legislators should be able to do that?
