HB 1761 Regulation of taxicabs.
SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)
Regulation of taxicabs. Provides that the governing body of any county, city, or town that regulates taxicabs may authorize any taxicab to operate software-based devices that utilize GPS or other measurement data in the calculation of time-and-distance fares, notwithstanding the requirements for the specifications and tolerances for measuring and weighing devices. The bill repeals the requirement that all taxicabs display roof signs and specific markings. The bill contains an emergency clause.
