I believe the FHV Committee will vote on this bill on November 13.  Assuming it passes, it would then have to be voted on by the full City Council and signed by the Mayor.

NYC Council Advances Bills Protecting Taxi, Ride-Hailing Drivers
The New York City Council passed a batch of bills aimed at protecting taxi drivers and drivers for app-based ride services such as Uber and Lyft from mounting financial and emotional pressures.

The six bills, approved Nov. 14 by the overwhelmingly Democratic-controlled council, are meant to supplement earlier actions signed in August by Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) to set a minimum driver pay standard and a one-year cap on the number of for-hire vehicles on the city’s streets from Uber Technologies Inc., Lyft Inc., and other e-hailing services. DeBlasio is expected to sign the new batch of bills.

The alliance, late in the same day as the council’s action, announced an eighth driver suicide. “While the city builds on the For-Hire-Vehicle cap and moves on a package of bills, including one that passed today on a Council task force to study medallion debt, change can’t come fast enough when every day is a struggle for drivers,” NYTWA Executive Director Bhairavi Desai said in a statement calling for direct financial relief to debt-burdened drivers.

A third bill would take aim at the precipitous drop in the market price for city taxi medallions, operating licenses auctioned by the city that have declined in value from a high of $1.3 million to less than $250,000 since the arrival of the app-based services. Bankruptcies and foreclosures by driver-owners have risen with the market collapse.

Task Force Plan
The bill (Intro. No. 304) also would establish a task force to study medallion prices and make legislative and policy recommendations to the city within six months.
