Two California bills meant to loosen AB 5’s restrictions have been passed by the state’s Assembly, Bloomberg Law reports.

The Assembly voted unanimously June 11 to advance two bills to the state Senate that would allow self-employed professionals in creative industries — such as freelance journalists, musicians and photographers, as well as certified translators, promoters and others who typically work for several employers on a contract basis — to maintain the independent status that they say is necessary to their livelihoods.

A.B. 1850 passed 73-0, while A.B. 2257 passed 70-0. The Senate has until Aug. 31 to send the bills on to Gov. Gavin Newsom for his signature.
