The bill that was promised for the purpose of allowing ride sharing companies such as Lyft and Uber to operate in South Dakota has been filed and assigned a number. And this one looks like it might be a popular measure.
HOUSE BILL NO. 1091
Introduced by: Representatives Willadsen, Bartling, Beal, Bolin, Cronin, Deutsch, Gosch, Hawley, Heinemann (Leslie), Holmes, Hunt, Jensen (Alex), Kirschman, Klumb, Latterell, Mickelson, Novstrup (Al), Rasmussen, Romkema, Rounds, Schoenfish, Stalzer, Steinhauer, Stevens, Verchio, Werner, Westra, Wollmann, and Zikmund and Senators Peters, Brown, Cammack, Fiegen, Frerichs, Haverly, Heinert, Holien, Omdahl, Rusch, Soholt, and Tieszen
This measure has both House and Senate Leadership on it, and I have to give them kudos for what on the surface appears to be legislation we can thank them for as they reduce regulatory hurdles, and dial back the heavy hand of government regulation to make the Uber concept a reality in the state.
(Good job, guys)
