Bill to Remove Barriers to Job Creation Passes First Hurdle

Denver--Today, Senator Owen Hill's (R-Colorado Springs) bill to remove barriers to job entry for car share drivers passed out of the Senate Business, Labor, and Technology committee. The bill, Senate Bill 17-043, repeals a redundant medical certification requirement for car share drivers. 

"Uber and Lyft are employing more Coloradans every day and giving them a shot at a brighter future, my bill is a commonsense clean-up to remove an unnecessary administrative burden and help more folks get to work," said Hill. "Republicans are leading the way and delivering on promises to limit burdensome regulations and remove barriers to job growth for Coloradans, and I'm pleased we were able to take this step."   

Senate Bill 17-043 now moves on to a vote of the committee of the whole.
