Gig companies just launched a $90 million campaign to escape California’s crackdown on the gig economy.

The Protect App-Based Drivers & Services campaign, funded by Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash, will file paperwork on Oct. 29 to put a referendum on California’s 2020 ballots. The ballot measure will ask voters to give ride-hailing companies an exemption to AB 5, a landmark state law passed in September that outlaws many aspects of the gig economy.
