HB 221-Relating to Transportation Network Companies (TNC’s)
On Wednesday, February 8th, HB 221, relating to Transportation Network Companies, by Representative Chris Sprowls (R-Clearwater) and Representative James Grant (R-Tampa) was heard by the House Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee and was reported favorably by a vote of 14 yeas to 1 nay. AIF stood in support of this bill.
This bill aims to establish a regulatory framework for transportation network companies and how they operate throughout communities in Florida. HB 221 defines what constitutes as a “TNC vehicle”, sets in place insurance requirements and preempts authority to the state, which will allow for a streamlined set of rules to be followed throughout the state.
HB 221 will now go to the House Government Accountability Committee, its second and final committee hearing.
AIF SUPPORTS statewide digital transportation service policies to create price competition, promote consumer choice, enhance customer experience, create jobs and remove anti-competitive local regulations.
