Uber and Lyft call “sex” amendment disappointing, unnecessary

Published on April 24, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to include a response from Lyft.  Five days after a controversial amendment defining “sex” as “the physical condition of being male or female” was added to a statewide ride-hailing bill, representatives from Uber and Lyft called the addition disappointing and unnecessary — though both companies stopped short of saying they’d withdraw their support.  “We are disappointed that this unnecessary amendment was added to legislation that should be focused on adopting a consistent statewide framework for ride sharing,” Uber spokesman Travis Considine said. “Uber’s comprehensive national nondiscrimination policy will not change.”Via Texas Tribune
