Explanation

The amendment classifies as contractors, rather than employees, for the purposes of unemployment compensation law, certain owner operators of motor vehicles, who transport property by motor vehicle for compensation. It is not known how many motor vehicle operators who own their own vehicles are currently treated as employees. The amount of tax currently paid on such drivers and the number of such drivers eligible to receive benefits under current unemployment compensation law cannot be identified at this time.
