    Whether it is bedrooms, cars, or even bikes, the sharing economy is in full swing in Texas and elsewhere. What issues do these businesses raise? What are some communities doing to regulate them? Why are some states like Texas preempting local governmental regulation?  This panel will address how local and state governments in Texas and elsewhere are responding to the sharing economy. 

    Faculty will:

    • Analyze the breadth of issues raised by the sharing economy and appreciate the difficulty of regulating short-term rentals or ride-sharing drivers due to the involvement of numerous persons providing these services
    • Predict the types of legal challenges brought to challenge municipal regulation of the sharing economy
    • Identify ways to retrofit public ways to accommodate motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and people riding motorized scooters and bicycles
