Did anything come out the proposal(s) to buy back taxi licenses in France?


France24 reported in 2016 that there were several proposed schemes to buy out the (still) transferable taxi licenses. Cost was apparently a problem though:

In a “roadmap” presented to taxi companies and cabbies’ unions on Monday, French Transport Minister Alain Vidalies said he hoped a dedicated fund would guarantee drivers get back the same amount of money that it cost to buy the licences, plus inflation. [...]

Vidalies hopes his road map will become a solid proposal by the summer. There are 55,000 taxi drivers in France, and a fund to guarantee the cost of their licenses would require anywhere between €2 and €5 billion.

Did anything come out of these proposals since then?
