The California lawmaker behind the controversial law making it harder to classify workers as contractors has proposed a new bill to prevent food delivery companies from offering drop-offs from restaurants that have not signed up and requires they share customer data with restaurants that do sign up.

Why it matters: State governments are turning up the heat on gig economy companies.

The big picture: Like her new labor law, California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez's new bill would directly curtail a common practice among these companies.

  • In October, GrubHub told investors it would begin to provide delivery of meals from restaurants that have not signed up for its marketplace, a move it said became necessary to compete with rivals that already do this.

Details: The bill prohibits food delivery services from offering food unless a restaurant has signed up.

  • And for those who do sign up, they will be able to get data about customers, including their email addresses, telephone numbers, delivery addresses and history of orders from that restaurant.

Primary elections are being held on Tuesday in Minnesota, Georgia, Connecticut, Vermont and Wisconsin.

The big picture: Georgia and Wisconsin both struggled to hold primaries during the coronavirus pandemic, but are doing so again — testing their voting systems ahead of the general election. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing a strong challenger as she fights for her political career. In Georgia, a Republican primary runoff pits a QAnon supporter against a hardline conservative.

The U.S. government has agreed to buy 100 million doses of Moderna's experimental coronavirus vaccine for $1.5 billion, or $15 per dose.

Why it matters: The Trump administration, through Operation Warp Speed, has now bought initial batches of vaccines from Moderna, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi, Pfizer, Novavax, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca before knowing whether they are safe and effective. The federal government also appears to own some of the patent rights associated with Moderna's vaccine.
