The Arizona House has approved an overhaul of regulations for ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft.
Republican Rep. Karen Fann unveiled details of a deal she’s negotiated between taxi firms, ride-hailing companies and insurers on Wednesday. The House then voted 55-0 for House Bill 2135, sending it to the Senate for action.
The legislation lays out a regulatory scheme for ride-hailing firms and sets minimum insurance rules. It also requires vehicle inspections, driver background checks, and sets a zero tolerance policy for drug and alcohol use by drivers.
New Gov. Doug Ducey wants the ride-sharing firms to succeed and called for new legislation.
