Florida Chamber-Backed Ridesharing Bill Passes Subcommittee
By: Christopher Emmanuel
Today the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee passed a Florida Chamber-backed bill that would allow ridesharing companies like Lyft and Uber to continuing growing in Florida.
HB 221, sponsored by Representatives Chris Sprowls (R-Clearwater) and James Grant (R-Tampa), passed 14-1. The bill would establish a consistent and responsible statewide regulatory framework for these innovative technology companies, allowing them to meet increasing consumer demand while ensuring public safety and helping diversify Florida’s economy.
The Florida Chamber will continue to monitor the progress of HB 221. Click here to learn more about the Florida Chamber’s 2017 Competitiveness Agenda and how we’re working to secure Florida’s position as the nation’s top business climate.
