ST. PAUL, MN (trfnews.i234.me) UBER says it may pull its ride service from Minnesota unless Governor Walz vetoes new, pending legislation. Governor Walz has now vetoed that bill.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walls is yet to decide on whether to sign a bill that sets minimum compensation for Uber and Lyft drivers. The proposed legislation also requires the ride-hailing companies to have written rules and an appeals process for drivers who are deactivated. A group of Uber and Lyft drivers gathered outside the governor’s office urging him to veto the bill, claiming that the resulting rise in ride prices would force them to leave parts of the state. The drivers also argued that they were hardworking family people who depended on their earnings from driving for the ride-hailing firms. Governor Walls has promised to consider input from various stakeholders before making a decision.

  1. .It is a contract between two private parties.
    If drivers feel they need more compensation, they can negotiate that, they don't have to drive for these companies. With no drivers, the companies can either leave or pay them more.
    The state has no business in this..
