MIAMI (CBSMiami/NSF) — Uber is revving up their efforts for a spot in the Legislature’s special session.
The regular legislative session ended last week without approval of a proposal for statewide regulations that would override local rules for fast-growing transportation networks such as Uber. Also, lawmakers failed to take action on new insurance requirements for the ride-sharing companies.
Now, the San Francisco-based Uber has set up a web page to gather signatures from riders and supporters urging that ride-sharing issues be considered when lawmakers get together in June to negotiate a budget.
“Although the Florida Legislature adjourned this session without passing ride sharing legislation, they still have an opportunity in the coming weeks to get it done,” Uber said on the webpage. “Legislators can finish what they started by taking up ride sharing legislation as part of the upcoming special session.”
