Rideshare legislation news

A few months ago we were made aware of pending legislation sponsored by Alderman Scott Waguespack, 32 Ward Alderman and chair of the Chicago city council’s Finance Committee, to further regulate rideshare by removing out-of-state cars and drivers from the Chicago service area. Gig Workers Matter has worked to follow-up with both Ald. Waguespack as well as a few other city council members. We are also partnering with like-minded advocacy organizations to push this piece of legislation through city council.

In addition, we are also following up with key Illinois state legislators working on the drafting bills similar to California’s AB5 legislation. It is still early in the process for those efforts but we’ll keep an eye on progress in the coming months.
