(Updated) Testimony in Nevada: The Competitor's Veto is unconstitutional

By Anastasia P. Boden Attorney

Last week I testified in the Nevada Assembly Committee on Transportation about the constitutionality (or lack thereof) of the state’s licensing laws for taxis, limousines, and moving companies.  In order to start a transportation business in the state, entrepreneurs essentially have to ask their competitors for permission first.  We call these laws the Competitor’s Veto, and we’ve challenged them successfully in Oregon, Missouri, Kentucky, and, as of Friday, Montana.

The Assembly has posted video of my testimony, which you can access here.  My presentation starts at 42:20.
