red card

California is considering a new law that would require businesses to withhold payments to subcontractors. Dubbed "revenue acceleration," the bill aims to fill the states' empty coffers with a quick infusion of dollars but may instead backfire when clients find it easier to terminate agreements rather than take on this new logistical nightmare.
