Uber Update

uber On January 22, 2015, several South Carolina House legislators filed H.B. 3413 which would ultimately regulate Uber and other transportation companies.  The introduction of this bill, along with the urging of local Charleston business leaders and Governor Haley, led the South Carolina Public Service Commission to suspend its cease and desist order against Uber.   The public hearing, previously scheduled for February 22, 2015, was also cancelled.

The Commission did reserve the right to “recommence” the proceedings if legislation was not enacted by June 30, 2015.  It appears that if such legislation does pass, the Commission will administratively close the proceedings by July 10, 2015.

In the meantime, Uber is now free to legally operate within South Carolina.
