Only one rideshare bill survives cutoff

Of the four transportation network company (rideshare) bills, two in the House and two in the Senate, only one has survived cutoff and continues to move.

SB 6043, Sen. Steve Hobbs (D-Lake Stevens), is now in the Senate Rules committee awaiting further action. Companion bills SB 6500/HB 2945, Sen. Rebecca Saldana (D-Seattle)/Rep. Jake Fey (D-Tacoma), and HB 2716, Rep. Gael Tarleton (D-Seattle), failed to receive votes out of their respective committees. To learn more about these rideshare bills, see our previous Legislative Bulletin article.

AWC preferred the policies outlined in SB 6500/HB 2945 and we were disappointed not to see them move forward.
