Kansas lawmakers have come to an agreement designed to get ride-hailing company Uber back into the state. Uber pulled out of Kansas right as the Legislature overrode the governor’s veto on regulations the company opposed. Under the agreement, Uber and other ride-hailing companies would be allowed to do third-party background checks on their subcontracted drivers. But, they would face possible lawsuits from the state attorney general if drivers were found to be operating with a criminal background. The State House & Senate are both expected to vote tomorrow.
