PITTSBURGH, PA - "I want to thank Gov. Tom Corbett for his support of laws that would adapt current state regulations to allow ride-sharing companies to grow.
I am talking with leaders in the state Legislature to swiftly address this problem.
When I met early this year with the chairman of the Public Utility Commission, Robert Powelson, he assured me he supported putting temporary rules in place that would allow these companies to operate. We now know that is not the case.
Pennsylvania needs to embrace innovation. With the direct engagement of the governor we can secure changes from the Legislature to allow these innovative companies to exist in the state.”
