Uber, Lyft push for legalization across NY

Uber and Lyft are making a major push in Albany to become legal across the state, but the companies are facing opposition from taxi companies who don't think they are playing by the rules.



Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers are said to be hashing out a deal during budget negotiations to legalize the ride hailing apps statewide, but some of the road bumps include how they will be regulated and the drivers' insurance requirements.



Plans to legalize the ride sharing companies could be finalized as budget talks wrap up by the end of the week.



Currently, it is not legal to hail a car using a ride sharing app in Westchester.
