UPDATE 9 P.M. MARCH 29: The bill will not be introduced to a committee, effectively killing the bill, according to a tweet from one of the lawmakers on the committee.
After reading through all of SB 485 and discussing it with Majority Leader @AaronDFordNV, we have determined it is bad policy, bill is DEAD!

Nevada lawmakers are considering a controversial bill regarding ridesharing companies, such as Uber and Lyft.
Wait times are among the things Senate Bill 485 would regulate. If passed, it would put a 15-minute wait time in place before a driver can pick up a passenger who requested a ride.
The bill also requires drivers to prove they've passed an alcohol and drug test, regular driving and medical examinations.
