Zalewski says he has what amounts to a “gentleman’s agreement” with the interested parties to move forward with a bill that will include requiring primary insurance coverage, background checks and licensing requirements. However, capping driver’s hours appears to be off the table. Zalewski hopes to pass the bill before a new General Assembly is sworn in next year.
