Nevada, Meet Uber…..Again
Ridesharing bill passed by legislature!
Legislature has just approved a controversial bill that will allow ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate within their state boundaries, Unimpeded by the law. For now.
The bill also brings a new 3% tax on all fares (including private taxi cab and limo companies) which is said to bring in tens of millions of dollars in new revenue for the state each year. It also covered things like minimum required insurance/terms for drivers for all transportation services such as they must provide atleast $1,500,000 in injury and death insurance for each passenger for the entire duration of which they are in the car.
The passing of this bill obviously comes as great news for Uber and all rideshare gurus around the world, Take a look at Uber Las Vegas’s most recent tweet!
