A move by the DC City Council to destroy competition between private sedans and taxis needs to be stopped.
DC Councilmember Mary Cheh has introduced a bill (#20-0753) http://lims.dccouncil.us/_layouts/15/uploader/Download.aspx?legislationid=31519&filename=B20-0753-Introduction.pdf
The proposed bill is unfair and will undercut your livelihood by giving Private Sedans such as UBERX, Sidecar, and Lyft an unfair advantage over taxi service!
Register your opposition to this bill by contacting each of the DC Transportation Committee’s members.
The deadline for comments is Thursday, May 22 – so call today!
Tell each councilperson: “I am a legally registered Taxi Driver in the District of Columbia and I OPPOSE bill 20-0753. This bill will negatively impact the taxi industry, my livelihood and does nothing to protect the riding public in our city. My family depends on me to make a decent living. Please vote against this bill.”
