The Sacramento City Council this week approved new rules for taxi cabs that are pretty unpopular with a lot of drivers.  They'll have to pass a language test, accept credit cards and there's a dress code  -- but supporters of the changes say they're good for business.

During the city council debate one driver who opposed the changes said taxi drivers are barely hanging on due to competition from ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft.  The transportation landscape is really changing. This wee,k Google unveiled a new self-driving car that could take human drivers out of the equation altogether. 

Another business headline this week was the sale of a pretty well-known local company, Tony's Fine Foods.

It's been a week now since the City Council approved the arena, but there are some lingering legal questions. Another arena-related bit of news is that this week the city agreed to sell a vacant building near 10th & J streets to developer John Saca.
