City Council Delays Vote on Rideshare App Regulation

The city has until Wednesday to appeal the regulations.

Los Angeles City Council members delayed a decision again Tuesday on whether to appeal state regulations that allow phone app-enabled rideshare companies, such as Lyft, Uber and Sidecar, to operate in California.

The city has until Wednesday to appeal the state Public Utilities Commission's regulations. Taxi companies have already appealed the regulations.

Michael Nagle, a city attorney who advises the Transportation Department, said Mayor Eric Garcetti has indicated he would veto a city appeal of the regulations.

City Councilman Paul Kortez wrote the motion to appeal state regulations. He said the rideshare companies are just illegal taxis in disguise.

Uber said they had no direct comment on the City Council motion.
