A-1 APPENDIX A: State TNC Statutes and Regulations A-1 APPENDIX A: State TNC Statutes and Regulations This appendix provides citations to the 49 TNC statutes that had been enacted as of the end of 2017. (Only Oregon and Vermont had not enacted TNC statutes.) References to identified regulatory activity are also included. The appendix highlights more aspects of the statutes: whether the statute only governs insurance requirements (IO), covers more than insurance requirements (I+), or preempts local regulationâalbeit in many cases making exceptions for airports (P). Less common aspects are limiting local regulation (Illinois and Maryland), specifically excluding workersâ compensation coverage (Arkansas), and sunsetting the legislation (Hawaii and Illinois). States for which no regulatory activity was identified are also flagged (X). Links to citations are provided for convenience; transit agencies should verify current statutory language from official sources. NB: in the case of states whose codes are administered by LexiNexis, links to free access version may not work with all browsers. â¢ Alabama (IO; X): Act 2016-409 (SB 262) Transportation Network Companies Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance Requirements, ALA.
