AUSTIN (KXAN) — In just a few weeks, you can decide if drivers for ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft must be fingerprinted.
Tuesday, several city leaders held a rally against Proposition 1.
They claim Uber has already spent nearly $2 million on television ads and social media that mislead the public.
They say this election is about who will run Austin: citizens or corporations.
“I don’t believe that corporations should have the same first amendment rights as people, and what Uber and Lyft are doing to Austin today demonstrates exactly why.”
Monday, Austin’s former Mayor told us he supports companies like Uber and Lyft. He says it’s not worth losing these valuable services.
