Calif. Operators Rally to Fight Law Change

Posted on March 11, 2004 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

Rick Brown, president of the Greater California Livery Association, is calling on operators across the state to fight a proposal that would allow cities to establish licenses and other regulations for limousine operators.

The proposal would also give airports the authority to supersede the state Public Utilities Commission, which currently regulates the limousine industry throughout the state.

Brown, of La Costa Limousine in Carlsbad, urged operators to join with the GCLA to fight any proposal to allow city- by-city regulations.

The measure, which has been introduced in the state Legislature, was written as an effort to give teeth to city’s enforcement departments and to help eliminate gypsy operators, according to the bill’s authors.

Brown said the proposal would not stop bandit operators, but will only make it more difficult for legitimate operators to run their businesses by increasing costs and regulations.

“This is completely unreasonable,” he said. “If the cities want more power to enforce the law, then we should have them enforce the PUC code. We all want the bandit operators out of business but this is clearly not the answer.”
