The following statement can be attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®:
“We are encouraged by reports that the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is taking steps to allow innovative transportation network providers Uber and Lyft to operate in the Commonwealth. As we noted from the moment the DMV issued a ‘cease-and-desist’ order to these companies, denying them the ability to operate in Virginia is anti-consumer, anti-jobs and directly at odds with Virginia’s reputation as a pro-business state.
“We urge the DMV to expedite its review of the companies’ applications for Virginia broker’s licenses and their request for temporary operating authority. The sooner the state moves to enable ride sharing services to operate in the state, the sooner we can help reduce traffic congestion, provide safe and reliable transportation options for consumers and continue to promote innovation throughout Virginia.
“We applaud Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe for his leadership on this issue and the DMV for listening to the voices of Virginia’s consumers and entrepreneurs. We also urge the Virginia legislature to craft a long-term solution to allow ride sharing throughout the state and to let the world know: Virginia stands for innovation.”
