Governor Hassan’s Statement on House Passage of Ridesharing Services Bill


CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement after the New Hampshire House of Representatives bipartisan vote to pass House Bill 1697, relative to the operation and insurance of transportation network companies:

“Ridesharing services such as Uber are leading the shared economy and can help make our state more attractive for students, young professionals, entrepreneurs and visitors alike, which will help our families, businesses and economy continue to grow and thrive. Emerging from bipartisan legislation that we passed last year to look at ways to regulate fundamentally new and different technologies when existing regulatory requirements can also vary greatly by municipality, House Bill 1697 will help ensure that Uber and other ridesharing companies have a permanent home here in New Hampshire. I thank the House for passing this important measure, and I remain committed to working with members from both parties to ensure that this is a bill that works for our innovative businesses, that ensures the safety of passengers, and that doesn’t take away the rights of workers.”
