CNPA offers a choice of two op-eds to consider regarding Assembly Bill 5, which could, if passed, end the home delivery of some newspapers in California.

Staff requests that you consider publishing whichever piece you are most comfortable with as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, here are some recent AB 5 op-eds created and published by CNPA Members:

Editorial: Gig economy bill goes way too far too fast (The San Diego Union-Tribune)

This bill could put local newspapers out of business. What you can do to help stop it (The Sacramento Bee)

Editorial: California legislators should not endanger newspapers (The Mercury News)
