#WhiteHouse fence jumper pleads guilty: washingtonpost.com/local/crime/al…
#Cheh asks members of committee to vote no on this Graham amendment as well.
@MartinDiCaro Hi @MartinDiCaro
Tommy Wells says he thinks hack inspector model is outdated, flawed; says won't be voting on Graham's amendment.
Graham now making a bid to reduce fines for taxicab drivers to a max of $250 (note: some can go as high as $1000).
Cites case of cab driver who received six violations during one stop. Cheh not on board, says she won't accept.
Graham wants to limit the number of citations that a cab driver can receive from a hack inspector per stop to 2 fines, 1 warning.
Councilman Jim Graham says he's still not sure legislation creates a level playing field; offers 3 amendments.
Legislation also give digitally-dispatched taxicabs the ability to change rates as they wish -- surge pricing, lower or higher fares
No public testimony on the legislation today re: #uberX, #Lyft, #sidecar bill. Cheh/Grosso bill will "regulate to the extent necessary"
