Former Councilman Jamie Hollin Lobbies Council to Keep Limo Price-fixing.

Jamie R. Hollin
Who is the person lobbying the Metro Council to persuade them to maintain limousine price fixing?  Former Councilman Jamie Hollin. He has paid his $50 annual fee and is now a registered lobbyist for the Tennessee Livery Association registering November 11, 2011. You may remember Jamin Hollin for a profanity-laced rant in the parking garage after a Tuesday night’s council meeting a few months ago when a resolution he had sponsored  was killed by two of his peers using standard parliamentary procedures.

Now out of the Council, he is busy lobbying the Council. The luxury limousine people have hired Hollin to lobby to defeat BL2011-49, a bill sponsored by Council Member Davette Blalock. BL2011-49 which will be on Second reading on Tuesday December 20th would undo the price fixing bill passed by the Council in June 2010. The effect of the June 2010 bill was to require a $45 minimum fee to hire a Limo and to impose other restrictions designed to limit competition. To learn more, follow this link.
