Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This allows a city, village, town, or county to regulate transportation network
companies (TNCs), their drivers, and the drivers' vehicles. Current law prohibits
cities, villages, towns, or counties from enacting or enforcing such regulations, and
under current law the Department of Safety and Professional Services has exclusive
authority to regulate TNCs, their drivers, and the drivers' vehicles.
