Should an e-scooter company be able to start operating in a city without the cooperation of local government?  When should local regulators step in, and how much regulation is right? The question is relevant to other issues ranging from the ban on plastic bags at grocery stores to the land development code. The discussion will feature two city council members on opposite sides of the scooter question, Allison Alter (District 10) and Jimmy Flannigan (District 6).

The event is sponsored by Common Ground for Texans, a nonpartisan nonprofit based in Austin.

Location: Old Quarry Branch Library, 7051 Village Center, Austin
