(Thomas Mitchell) – What’s that old saw? When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem is a nail.
Likewise, when we send people to Carson City and call them lawmakers, they think everything has to have a law.
If I pick my phone and call a friend to ask for a lift to the store and say I’ll give him a few bucks to cover gasoline and his time, do I need the nanny state to hold my hand and make sure my friend has adequate insurance and isn’t a criminal?
The same should go for picking up my cell phone and pressing an app, such as Uber, and asking the same of a stranger.
No, Senate Bill 439 proposed 12 pages of regulations on so-called transportation network companies to put Uber and similar businesses on a more even footing with taxi and limousine companies.
