California lawmakers consider rideshare bills

Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Lawmakers are considering two bills that would impose new insurance rules for rideshare services.

This morning, dozens of Uber and Lyft drivers held a rally at the state capitol to urge lawmakers to reject the bills.

Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla of Concord wants to require $1 million in insurance coverage anytime Lyft drivers have their app open to see who is looking for a ride. The other bill would require such companies to carry the same coverage 24/7 as regular taxis.
