Mayor Turner Issues Statement on passage of HB100 which preempts Municipal regulation of Transportation Network Companies

Statement from Mayor Sylvester Turner:

"I am disappointed the Legislature chose to override Houston's successful regulatory framework which has been in place since 2014. This is another example of the legislature circumventing local control to allow corporations to profit at the expense of public safety. Houston needs a paradigm shift in the way we view transportation, and Transportation Networking Companies (TNC) will undoubtedly play a role as we create a community-wide mobility solution. I am hopeful we can work with TNCs to expand our transportation options without putting our most vulnerable Houstonians at risk. Safety should always be first and local government is always best."
