Uber Technologies' dispute with the state of South Carolina is not "as big as it may sound," according to a government official.

The South Carolina Public Safety Commission ordered Raiser, an Uber subsidiary, to cease operations a week ago while its parent company obtains legal permission to do business within the state, according to a Reuters report. Scott said that the commission has postponed Uber's hearing until February 23.
This dispute is the latest in a string for the company. Cities including Los Angeles and Chicago have also banned its services. And Uber has temporarily suspended services in Portland, Ore.
The decision on whether to let Uber resume operations in South Carolina remains in the hands of the commission, Scott said. "It is our job to go to the commission and give them the information they need to make the right decision for the people of South Carolina," he said. "I believe we're in a position to do that."
