Gov. Walz vetoes rideshare bill, his first veto in five sessions
Walz sets up commission to explore Uber-Lyft driver pay and job security
May 26, 2023
Gov. Tim Walz vetoed a bill Thursday that would have provided pay raises and job protections to rideshare drivers.
This is Walz's fifth legislative session but his first veto. He said he will create a commission to study driver wages and working conditions with the expectation it will make recommendations for a bill in 2024.
"I am committed to finding solutions that balance the interests of all parties, including drivers and riders," Walz said in a release. "This is not the right bill to achieve these goals."
