PLF Principal Attorney Timothy Sandefur, and PLF client and entrepreneur, Tracie Pabst, discuss a new challenge to Montana’s Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity provision for taxi companies. Pabst, an experienced owner of a shuttle company that operates in Texas and New Mexico, seeks to start a taxi business in her hometown of Big Sky, but the state’s law contains a “competitors’ veto” provision making it unlikely that she could obtain a license.  Under the law, Pabst must prove there’s a public need for her taxi service, but then she can have an established competitor object or “veto” her application.
