Gov. Scott in Favor of 'Statewide Decision' for Rideshares



    What if Cancer Comes Back?

    Gov. Rick Scott says he believes that there should be a statewide decision made on how to fairly regulate rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft.

    Scott said Wednesday after a speech to an education summit in Orlando that he thinks that the state Legislature will tackle the issue during its next regular session and pass a bill that is fair for all sides and for consumers.

    In April, both the Florida House and Senate debated bills that called for a new form of liability insurance for the companies. 

    The Senate passed a bill the required rideshare companies to have insurance regulated by the state. A House version banned local government from passing regulations to ban rideshare companies and allowed for insurance not regulated by Florida.
