A bill that would have exempted servers, bartenders and other tipped employees in California from receiving minimum wage increases has died in the California state Assembly.

The bill, which was introduced in February and sponsored by the California Restaurant Association, did not drum up enough support to move forward, a representative for the association told the Sacramento Business Journal.

The restaurant association said it aims to present a different bill later this year that would freeze the minimum wage for servers and bartenders who earn at least $15 an hour with tips.
