SB 340 would prevent local governments from regulating "transportation network companies" such as Uber and Lyft and would adopt a uniform, common sense law focused on safety and access to the new technology.
It makes no sense that 67 counties and 410 municipalities would create their own set of regulations, which would make it impossible for ride-share drivers to comply as they serve neighboring cities and counties.
This legislation establishes common-sense guidelines throughout the state, and allows people in Florida to continue benefiting from ride-share companies like Uber and Lyft and allow affordable, reliable rides.
SB 340 will have its second reading on the Senate Floor this Tuesday April 18th, 2017 and could receive an up or down vote by the full Senate this week.
Call and e-mail your district Representative and tell them to support SB 340.
