Perhaps because of that, “AB2293 reads to me like it was written by and for California’s insurance industry,” said Steve DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice, a trade association of e-commerce companies, including Lyft. He noted that the bill’s sponsor, Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla, D-Concord, has received $94,200 in contributions from the insurance industry since her election four years ago.
When new tech entrepreneurs are starting their business, “the last thing on their list is to start a long-term program of political giving,” DelBianco said. At that stage, they’re focused on survival.
