Int 0860-2015 *I. Daneek Miller Commuter VansIntroductionThe bill would limit the number of commuter van licenses to 735, provided that the Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) could increase the number of available licenses upon a finding that there is a need for additional vans in an annual study.
