Dockless Bicycle Sharing (Watch) 

CS/CS/HB 1033 (Toledo) and CS/SB 1304 (Young) preempt local governments from regulating dockless bicycles and bicycle-sharing companies. CS/SB 1304 was amended in committee and removed the original preemption placed on local government. The amendment requires all dockless bicycles and bicycle-sharing companies to comply with all local laws and regulations. The amendment also prohibits a local municipality, under certain circumstances, from limiting a bicycle sharing company engaged in the rental of bicycles from operating within its jurisdiction.
