House Panel Approves Broad Steps To Accelerate Self-Driving Cars
On Wednesday, a US House panel approved a broad proposal by voice vote to allow automakers to release up to 100,000 self-driving vehicles without meeting existing auto safety standards while also barring states from imposing driverless car rules. Representative Robert Latta, a Republican who heads the Energy and Commerce Committee subcommittee overseeing consumer protection, said that he intends to continue considering changes before the full committee would be called upon to vot on the measure. The measure, the first significant federal legislation aimed at accelerating the process of bringing self-driving cars to market, would require automakers to submit safety assessment reports to U.S. regulators, however they would not be required to get pre-market approval of advanced vehicle technologies.
