CEA Supports Sen. Rubio's Efforts to Bring Uber to Miami

Arlington, Va., March 24, 2014 - The following statement can be attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, regarding Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-Fla.) meetings today at Uber's Washington, D.C. offices:


"I'm encouraged by Senator Rubio's continued efforts to allow innovative companies like Uber to challenge the status quo. Unfortunately, a small group of misguided bureaucrats in Miami seems content to stifle innovation and limit consumer choice in selecting local transportation providers.

"Innovative transportation services like Uber are transforming the ways we get from one place to another. These companies provide a win-win: they increase local transportation options and reduce the number of cars clogging city streets.

"Uber's services seem perfectly suited for a crowded metropolis like Miami. A few policymakers and business competitors should not be allowed to deny the citizens of Miami an alternative transportation service that is being embraced all over the United States."
