Bruce Rauner wants Governor Quinn to veto a bill that puts tighter regulations on ride-sharing companies, like Uber. He says the companies offer an innovative approach to job growth. Lawmakers went after the companies earlier this year, claiming the drivers should be required to get background checks and show proof of insurance.
Rauner doesn't disagree with those concepts, but he doesn't like the bill that's on Quinn's desk. Critics argue Rauner is against the bill because he has stock in one of Uber's investors.
