Bill allowing car ride app comes up in the senate

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Uber debate continues.

Lawmakers in the Fla. senate will look at SB 1618, filed by Jeff Brandes, a republican from St. Petersburg.

The bill would allow digital transportation apps, like Uber and Lyft, to operate in the state. Currently, the app companies can operate in Jacksonville and that's because of regulations.

Reps with Uber Technologies say certain restrictions on the industry, such as a minimum wait time of an hour, prevents them from doing business in other big areas like Hillsborough or Miami-Dade counties.
