4-29-15 dems want governor to veto ride hailing bill

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic lawmakers are asking Gov. Scott Walker to veto a bill that opponents argue doesn’t do enough to regulate ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft.  The veto request Tuesday comes after two Madison women reported incidents of unwanted sexual contact over the weekend by Uber drivers.  Eleven Dane County Democrats are requesting that Walker veto the bill that passed both the Assembly and Senate on bipartisan votes earlier this month.  The letter notes that the Madison Police Department asked Uber for information about the drivers in both incidents, but the company said it couldn’t provide that without a warrant or subpoena.  The lawmakers say the bill is flawed by not allowing for more local oversight of the companies.
