Rep. Rodriguez to Austin neighborhood group: Statewide ride-hailing regulations will likely be passed

Published on January 26, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Uber and Lyft may be back on Austin’s streets this year, according to Rep. Eddie Rodriguez, D-Austin, who told a group of residents last night that he expects statewide ride-hailing regulations to pass, thus reversing the vote Austinites took last May to mandate fingerprint background checks. “I think, knowing the Legislature the way it is right now, a bill like that has a decent chance of passing,” Rodriguez told the Austin Neighborhoods Council—a neighborhood advocacy group—at its first meeting of 2017 last night. Rodriguez represents parts of East and Central Austin.
