Meet Dee Sova, an entrepreneurial independent truck driver who moved her company out of California due to AB5, the state law effectively eliminating the ability to remain independent.

Ms. Sova said it best, “To most people, owning your own business is a way to become successful. For me, it was a mission – a lifeline to a brighter future for myself and my daughters…I was living my version of the American Dream. But lawmakers in Sacramento soon had a very different plan for me.”

Unfortunately for California, she is not the only one exiting the state for points east in order maintain independence.

The California Trucking Association (CTA) has been battling the state in the courts. In late December 2020, the CTA won Round 1 and secured a temporary injunction but eighteen months later lost Round 2 and the injunction was lifted.

Get ready for Round 3. The CTA has new legal arguments and is again seeking an injunction.
