From the Morning Memo:

Among the batch of vetoes approved Monday night by Gov. Andrew Cuomo was a bill that would have allowed local municipalities to regulate transportation network companies the same way they do livery and taxi services.

But for proponents of expanding ride-hailing services like Lyft and Uber, all is not lost: Included in the veto message was the suggestion Cuomo would raise the issue in the budget negotiations next year.

Should Cuomo include ride-hailing legislation in his own budget presentation, he would likely have more leverage in the talks with lawmakers.

Cuomo vetoed the transportation network company legislation on Monday, citing the failure of the Legislature to develop a bill setting statewide regulations for such services statewide through an insurance framework.

Uber has already signaled it will once again push for the measure in the coming legislative session, which begins in January.
