Veto of Commercial Ridesharing "Uber" Bill Stands

On November 21, 2014, the Illinois House failed to override Governor Quinn’s veto of HB 4075That bill was intended to ensure that ridesharing companies such as Uber and Lyft offer the same consumer protections as is required for the taxi industry (i.e., commercial liability insurance, criminal background checks, special licenses, special registration plates, vehicle inspections, etc.). The bill also included language that would preempt home rule powers and circumvent local regulatory authority.  Home rule preemption prompted the Governor’s veto and the Illinois Municipal League's opposition to the bill.
