Uber settles with Pa. regulators for $3.5 million for operating without authority

- Pennsylvania regulators are settling a legal dispute with the ride-hailing company Uber Technologies Inc. for $3.5 million. 

   The Public Utility Commission, which regulates public transportation in Pennsylvania, said Thursday the agreement ended a fight over Uber and subsidiaries that operated without authority in the state for six months in 2014.
 
   A pair of administrative judges had recommended a $50 million fine, which the commission whittled down to $11 million in May.
 
   That's the fine Uber had been appealing before the settlement was reached.
 
   Uber says it's glad the matter has been resolved. The settlement says both sides agree Uber has been operating lawfully in the state since August 2014.
