Colorado Future Caucus Members Help Pass Bipartisan Ridesharing Legislation
June 6, 2014
Rep. Dan Pabon (D), Colorado Future Caucus co-chair, led a bipartisan coalition to pass the country’s first pro-ridesharing legislation.
The law allows ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate legally in Colorado and enacts regulations to ensure that they operate safely. This includes legally mandated background checks on drivers and vehicle inspections by the state.
“What this does is it welcomes technology and innovation to Colorado,” said Pabon in an interview with the Associated Press.
This marks the first instance of a state legislature passing ridesharing legislation in the country.
The goal of the Colorado Future Caucus is to foster a nonpartisan community of young state-elected officials that models post-partisan leadership on future-oriented issues facing America’s next generation.
