As the process begins, proposals on ridesharing have nuanced differences
Three big bills emerge as the major players on the issue by Schwertner, Nichols, and Paddie
Members of the Legislature this week heard several
proposals related to regulating ride-hailing companies. The topic was
considered in House and Senate committees as bills with many
of the same goals but some nuanced differences were laid out.
In a Thursday House Transportation Committee meeting,
while taking up House Bill 100 by Rep. Chris
Paddie, lawmakers grappled with many of the same
arguments for why or why not the bill should pass as were heard in Senate
committee on Tuesday.
