Florida Rep. Jason Fischer filed HB723 last week, legislation that would protect peer-to-peer carshring in the state, according to Florida Politics.

The bill would reduce regulations to allow "for innovation in the transportation field so peer-to-peer car-sharing companies can grow and meet increasing consumer demand, all while protecting public safety,” Fischer's office said in a statement.

“Peer-to-peer car sharing offers an innovative and tech-forward solution that promotes entrepreneurship, safety, and convenience," Fischer said in a press release. "Just as the Legislature acted on ride-sharing, the time has come to reduce excessive government regulation so our state embraces peer-to-peer car sharing and expands safe, convenient transportation options for Floridians.”
