City Council votes to delay taxi cab reform
It’s a win for taxi drivers: at today’s New Orleans City Council meeting new reforms involving cab companies using vehicles more than seven years old was up for a vote.
Cab drivers asked the council for a one-year delay to make those changes go into effect.
Four council members voted yes to the delay and 3 voted no, so the measure passed.
One catch: Mayor Landrieu can veto the decision within the next 10 days.
