The attorney general of Rhode Island wants to start fingerprinting all taxi drivers, including Uber and Lyft drivers.Attorney General Peter Kilmartin wants a change to legislation adopted last year that didn't include a fingerprinting requirement.The need for a biometric background check was removed after Uber and other companies objected, but Kilmartin, a Democrat, wants to require prospective drivers to go through a national criminal records check.While Uber naturally opposes Kilmartin's bill. The New England Livery Association supports it.Neighbouring Massachusetts began running Uber and Lyft drivers through stringent background checks this year, designed in part to bar registered sex offenders from driving. Connecticut is also considering a fingerprint requirement in pending legislation.
