On Wednesday, the state Senate will take up a bill to regulate ride-for-hire companies like Uber and Lyft. Under the proposed regulations, ride-for-hire companies would not be required to fingerprint or complete state background checks on their drivers, and the companies would have to offer tipping through their apps.
