ATLANTA -- A compromise appears to be in the works in the turf war between taxis, limos and ride-share companies like "Uber" and "Lyft."
Georgia House Bill 907 looks like it's headed to a possible floor vote. It would basically force those companies to follow many of the laws that taxi cabs and limos already have to.
There are many components to the bill, but the big issues are these:
-Just like cabs the ride-share companies would have to register with the state.
-The cars would have to carry at least $300,000 in insurance and offer the option of credit card payments for passengers, not just cash.
-Drivers will need background checks, fingerprints, and a chauffeur's endorsement added to their driver's licenses. But they'd get time to do all that without losing work.
