Kansas Senate votes to override Gov. veto of Uber bill

shut down operations in Kansas. “We’re not asking for much,” said Rep. Scott Schwab, one of the bill’s backers. “I mean, in Colorado next to us, they go through their bureau of investigation and Uber didn’t leave there. … We have to make sure, just like everybody else on the road, they have protections.” Meanwhile, Florida recently attempted to pass more provisions regarding Uber driver insurance requirements. However, the Florida Senate and Florida House of Representatives have very different bills up for debate; the Senate bill primarily covers how much insurance Uber drivers should be required to carry, while the House bill focuses more on background checks on drivers, while still including insurance provisions. Some Florida legislators are also attempting to pass bills that would prevent the state from regulating ride-sharing services, similar to what Gov. Brownback was attempting to do in Kansas. Others continue to push for regulations, in the hope that Uber will accept the new rules or make like Kansas drivers and leave the state.]]>
