Uber Bill Goes Viral

Designed to help the public find accessible transportation (and avoid driving after a few cocktails), Uber and other companies connecting independent drivers to those seeking to avoid taking to the road are attracting big social media attention. Apparently under attack from Republicans who seem increasingly to be driven to regulate every last inch of Georgia, the bill reportedly is designed to kill off Uber and other “free enterprise” operations. Former longtime Democrat turned recently (2010) Republican Alan Powell (R-Hartwell) is leading the charge. Expect this move to hit a rocky road with metro-Atlanta’s younger scene, and with the ultra-conservative Tea Party crowd, who deplore added burdens on innovation. Expect MADD to get riled up too!Click on this sentence to see the bill.
