Moving into the Future: Updating Existing Regulations to Make Way for Innovation in the Transportation Sector
With the overnight explosion of Transportation Network Companies, such as Uber and Lyft, States have been left to quickly determine how to adequately regulate these new and innovative services. Many States have existing transportation regulations on the books that do not directly account for this new technology platform. The panel will discuss how States can update their existing regulations to address this new technology and protect the traveling public by ensuring that Transportation Network Companies operate safely, maintain adequate insurance, and comply with State regulations.

Moderator: Hon. Gladys Brown, Pennsylvania
