CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers failed to approve a number of revised regulations to ride-hailing companies like Uber before the legislative session ended.

Lawmakers failed to approve an amended version of SB440 on Monday before the legislative session ended at midnight.

The bill would have prohibited ride-hailing companies from picking up passengers at certain licensed casinos and hotels with more than 1,000 rooms unless they reach an agreement beforehand specifying where passengers can be picked up.

It also would have required them to refer disabled people to an alternative transportation provider. Assembly members approved the amendment late Monday, but it was unable to pass the Senate before the session ended.

Gov. Brian Sandoval signed legislation into law last week allowing ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate legally in the state.
