SAINT PAUL, MN – On Tuesday, Rep. Sandy Layman, R-Cohasset, presented her bill, HF3032, to the House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee. The legislation implements a statewide framework for ridesharing companies rather than the current city-by-city model.
“I see ridesharing as another transportation option in Greater Minnesota, but we need to make sure there’s a consistent set of regulations throughout the state,” said Layman. “Now we’re seeing a patchwork of laws that make it difficult for ridesharing services to expand to other areas like Grand Rapids. One set of statewide guidelines would make it much easier for these services to provide another mode of transportation for residents of rural Minnesota.”
The bill passed out of committee and was referred to the Civil Law and Data Practices Committee.
