ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The Transportation Network Company Safety and Regulatory Act, which cleared the Legislature on Dec. 19, failed to require fingerprint background checks for drivers, the accepted and widespread gold standard in reviewing possible criminal history. 

Press Of Atlantic City editorial here

From LCT: Jason Sharenow, president of the Limousine Association of New Jersey, said: "LANJ has been aggressive in keeping the pressure up and fingerprinting does have bipartisan support in the Senate and Assembly. We are hopeful that the Attorney General will acknowledge that fingerprinting is the truly tgold standard for legitimate background checks and not relent to the TNCs' claim of bias and discrimination.”
