    I just started using Uber and I find this service to be professional and very valuable.

    The cost of Uber is low and helps create competition in the taxi industry.

    It provides many jobs for both part and full time employees.

    I am saddened by the political games that the state can play.

    I have personally written to each of the legislators mentioned on your article.I encourage everyone to do the same. Let them hear your voice.

    Even if you do not use this service, many others do, and we cannot afford to stand on the sidelines and let the government go wild.

  2. Land of the Free and Home of the Brave (???)...obviously the services are a serious threat to the Taxi Cab Monopoly and the resulting kick-backs, etc. Remember the Golden Rule: The Guy with the Gold, Makes the Rules.

    There was a big editorial on it on the front of the Nevada section today.

    I am asking you to take at least two actions: 1) register support or opposition on the Legislature’s “opinion” website; and 2) alert Governor Sandoval to your support or opposition via email and ask him to sign or veto (as the case may be) bills that reach his desk.

    CLICK on the following link to express your opinion on the Legislature’s site:

    You are not required to comment, although I encourage you to do so.

    Just find the bill via the “Select a bill” drop-down menu on the right-hand side of the page, and indicate “for” or “against.”

    You can save your info, so that you don't need to re-enter your name and address every time. Please encourage your friends and family to do this as well.

    TO CONTACT Governor Sandoval:

    You can also email and/or call our legislators and express your position.

    If interested, listed below are further contacts:

    Nevada Legislative Hotline connects to all offices:

    Dick, I read your article and would just like to say the amount of insurance should not be one of the issues.

    As you know your personal auto policy excludes coverage for business use of your vehicle.

    I would suggest to the legislature they make sure the Uber and Lyft drivers have business auto policies.
