A BIPARTISAN GROUP OF LAWMAKERS IS LOOKING TO OVERRIDE THE GOVERNOR’S VETO OF CAR-SHARE LEGISLATION. 

 

THE MEASURE ADDRESSES PEER-TO-PEER CAR SHARING, WHERE PEOPLE CAN RENT THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLES TO CONSUMERS. IT APPLIES MANY OF THE SAME REGULATIONS AND TAXES AS CAR RENTAL COMPANIES LIKE HERTZ AND ENTERPRISE ARE SUBJECTED TO SAYS SENATOR TONY MUNOZ OF CHICAGO.

 

 

THE GOVERNOR VETOED THE MEASURE SAYING IT STIFLED AN EMERGING INDUSTRY, BUT REPRESENTATIVE GRANT WEHRLI OF NAPERVILLE SAYS THE OVERSIGHT IS NEEDED.

 

 

BOTH THE HOUSE AND SENATE MUST OVERRIDE THE GOVERNOR’S VETO FOR THE BILL TO BECOME LAW.
