TNC Regulations in Austin

It has been over a year since the city of Austin legalized Uber and Lyft in Austin.  The new council has taken up the issue and is looking to make the original ordinance permanent with a number of additional regulations.  One of the additional regulations would require all drivers to submit to a fingerprint background check.  Lyft does not operate in any city with a mandatory fingerprint check.  Uber only operates in Houston with the check, but only reluctantly.  KEYE interviewed me on my thoughts.  They actually spread out my comments over a few news cycles.
