Make the rules or your rivals will: legal cartels in Nashville

It seems as if Nashville's high end limo companies want the government to eliminate competition from lower-priced competitors:

Until 2010, sedan and independent limo services were an affordable alternative to taxicabs. A trip to the airport only cost $25. But in June 2010, the Metropolitan County Council passed a series of anti-competitive regulations requested by the Tennessee Livery Association—a trade group formed by expensive limousine companies. These regulations force sedan and independent limo companies to increase their fares to $45 minimum.
