Uber rallies against pending N.J. regulations

Uber Technologies Inc. held a rally in Secaucus on Monday to protest pending legislation that company officials say, if passed as is, would spell the end of the popular UberX ride-sharing service in New Jersey.

The measure, known as Assembly Bill 3765, would require Uber drivers, who have been operating in New Jersey unregulated for about a year and a half, to register with the state Motor Vehicle Commission, meet minimum insurance requirements, get chauffeur endorsements on their drivers' licenses and have criminal background checks done that include fingerprinting.

Drivers' cars would have to be marked so police could identify them as transportation network company cars.
