From The Center Square:

Response to the passage of the legislation has been mixed.

“Although we prefer that companies and their workers negotiate the terms of employment without state government involvement, we have no problem with the details of HB 2076,” explained Steve Greenhut, Western region director at the R Street Institute, in an email to The Center Square. “It provides minimum pay, sick leave and other protections.”

Greenhut went on to note, “Indeed, Lyft and Uber have publicly supported the proposal. It’s a far better approach than the one taken in California, which tried to ban independent contracting – and merely threatened (until voters intervened) the continued existence of these flexible ridesharing jobs.”
