Wisconsin Senate OKs ride-hailing regulations

MADISON - The Wisconsin Senate has approved a bill that would create statewide regulations on ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft.

The measure would prohibit any local ordinances governing ride-hailing companies. Instead, the companies would have to purchase a $5,000 state license, conduct driver background checks and maintain liability insurance.

Drivers would be prohibited from discriminating against passengers based on their race, religion, sex or disability.
