TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas state senator says time is running out for ride-hailing company Uber to come to a compromise with the Legislature over regulations.

Republican Sen. Jeff Longbine from Emporia said Monday that he and representatives from the insurance and banking sectors continue to negotiate with Uber after it announced May 5 it was leaving the state.

The company said it decided to immediately cease operations in Kansas after the Legislature overrode Gov. Sam Brownback’s veto of regulations it found excessive. A spokeswoman for the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Longbine said the sides will likely have to come to agreement by Tuesday in order for the Legislature to have time to pass any changes to the earlier regulatory bill.
