AB 1875, as introduced, Gonzalez. Charter-party carriers.
The Passenger Charter-Party Carriers’ Act, with certain exceptions, prohibits a charter-party carrier of passengers from engaging in transportation services subject to regulation by the Public Utilities Commission without obtaining a specified certificate or permit, as appropriate, from the commission, and imposes various other requirements. Existing law imposes certain penalties for violation of the act.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to these provisions.
