Memorandum


    
     The purpose of this bill is to allow and regulate transportation network companies.
    
     Implementation of this legislation will require establishing a new regulatory section within the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). It is estimated that at least three additional persons, plus one trained investigator would need to be added. This would allow for initial application review, insurance verification, and review of any and all complaints. While it appears that §17-29-10 sets forth self-regulation, §17-29-18 shifts the regulatory authority to the DMV.
    
     Transaction numbers for this type of regulation are not readily available, so all calculations are best estimated approximations.
