There is a new law in effect that ensures ride-share drivers receive adequate background checks. Here's what it says according to NBC News:
"A statement from Illinois Senate Democrats says it took effect Tuesday. It requires that those applying to be ride-share drivers provide their full name and social security number, as well as their date of birth.
The statement says that before the new law prospective drivers were only required to give their address, age, driver's license number, motor vehicle registration and automobile insurance liability."
