Maryland Public Service Commission goes stupid – wants to regulate Uber…why, because it works?

Everyone I talk to says the car service Uber is great….great service…yes, it works. So what does Maryland do in its great wisdom? It is trying to regulate it. How come the minute something really works government has to step in and ruin it? See below from the Baltimore Sun.


“Uber Technologies still has a lot to say about the Maryland Public Service Commission’s plan to regulate it and other popular rideshare companies as taxi operators — and the regulating agency will hear the company out.

Uber, which has said it will leave the state if the changes introduced last month go into effect, notified the commission Tuesday that it plans to appeal the proposal. On Wednesday, the day the changes would have taken effect, the commission granted the company’s request to write a 60-page appeal before a decision is made…” Baltimore Sun
