Governor Tom Wolf and Pittsburgh area officials want Pennsylvania regulators to greatly reduce their $11.4 million fine against ride-sharing company Uber. The Public Utility Commission which also regulates buses and taxis fined the company last month for operating six months in 2014 without a license. Mayor Peduto and County Executive Fitzgerald contend innovative companies might be discouraged from investing in Pennsylvania if the fine is allowed to stand noting Uber has picked Pittsburgh as its world headquarters for advanced technology research and for testing self-driven vehicles.
