DENVER — Colorado state legislator Matt Knoedler is attempting to eliminate what he says is an antiquated regulation governing the state's luxury limousine industry. During the 1980s, state lawmakers enacted a requirement that limousines must offer phones and TVs, in addition to ice buckets and coolers, to be classified as "luxury." This designation was important for distinguishing between taxis and luxury limousines for the state’s regulatory system.
Knoedler, with bipartisan support, introduced legislation recently that would eliminate the requirement that limousines must have a TV, phone and beverage service to obtain the "luxury" classification. The change is expected to have little effect on limousine operators in the state.
