DC Council at War with Free Market

Councilmembers to vote on restricting competition

Washington, DC: Republican candidates for DC Council made the following statements regarding the recent “Uber Amendment.” The amendment, if passed, would require all car services to charge at least 5-times the current drop rate of DC taxis.

“The DC Council should stand up for the free market. The legislation before the Council today would would stifle competition for quality transportation in the city by discouraging services such as those offered by Uber.  I urge the Council to vote down the amendment as written, and instead create legislation to enhance competition,” stated Mary Brooks Beatty, candidate for At-Large DC Council.

“The Council has no business regulating what car services operate in DC. It should be up to the residents of the District of Columbia to decide what services have the best options for their needs and price range. I hope the Council will back off of regulating businesses that do nothing more than give customers a choice,” stated Ron Moten, candidate for DC Council, Ward 7
