Assemblywoman Bonilla’s AB 2293, which protects passengers, drivers and the general public by clarifying insurance coverage for Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft, was approved yesterday by the Senate with a 30-4 vote and this evening by the Assembly with a 70-0 vote. AB 2293 is now on its way to Governor Brown’s desk where it requires his signature before the bill becomes law.
“AB 2293 is a testament to good public policy. I have worked hard to assure that consumers and TNC drivers are protected, while also allowing this innovative business model to thrive,” said Assemblywoman Susan A. Bonilla (D-Concord). “This bill creates a policy that is both affordable and flexible, but still ensures corporate accountability. My ultimate goal was to demonstrate that business innovation and consumer protection are not mutually exclusive, while also facilitating the maturation of this new industry into our economy.”
