In Portland, OR, Street Roots reports that a homeless former social worker with muscular dystrophy was hit with a misdemeanor theft charge for charging her phone from a plug on a planter-base on a sidewalk. She then spent a day in jail when she missed her arraignment.
Why TAO is in opposition of HB 2237 and HB 2995
We write to you in opposition of HB 2237 and HB 2995 as written, and with the -2 amendments to HB 2995. These bills would place burdensome, prohibitive and punitive insurance requirements on Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) that would create major barriers for companies like Uber and Lyft to continue operating in Oregon.
TNCs are among the newest, most exciting and transformative technology companies in the world– and they have found a home in Oregon, already bringing economic opportunities to thousands of Oregon residents and to communities across the state in the past month alone. But these bills put those economic opportunities in jeopardy.
