Taxi industry deregulation
On January 22, 2013, Trujillo and Representative Tom Taylor introduced HB 194, a bill to amend the Motor Carrier Act. The bill, drafted by the Think New Mexico think tank, would deregulate the taxi, moving, and shuttle businesses in New Mexico by making it easier for new operators to enter the market. Presently, New Mexico's Public Regulation Commission must deny applications for operator licenses if existing operators demonstrate that they would lose business, but HB 194 would require existing operators to demonstrate that quality of motor carrier services to a given community would be negatively affected for the PRC to reject a new application. Firms would be able to change the rates they charge without PRC approval if the rates remain below the PRC-set maximum. HB 194 has been referred to the Business and Industry Committee of the New Mexico House of Representatives.
