Nevada seems to have a desire to make life harder for ridesharing companies. With several bills now working their way through the state legislature, there is much to be concerned about for companies like Uber and Lyft. Depending on who you ask you're either going to hear that the state is being overbearing and unfair, or that the state simply wants drivers and companies to come inline with the taxi companies that must abide by more stringent rules than those currently being imposed.
Several bills are being considered and voted on. SB 226 and 279 along with AB 445 and 487 will impose new liscensing and restrictions on rideshare drivers. By and large the restrictions address places where ridesharing companies have been skirting the rules, so to speak. The state hopes that by requiring business licenses insurance that covers thier passengers adequately, the public will be better protected. Drivers would also be required to obtain and display Nevada Transportation Authority decals.
