This is the November 15, 2016 hearing on "Disrupter Series: Self-Driving Cars" held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Committee Chairman Fred Upton: "Today our Disrupter Series continues as we examine self-driving cars. Keeping Americans safe on the road has been a top priority for the committee. Being from the auto state, I know just how dedicated the auto industry and Michigan's premier research institutions are to developing a roadway system that is accident and defect free. This work is critical - especially when considering that traffic fatalities are on the rise for the first time in more than a decade. In Michigan, there were nearly 1,000 fatalities last year alone. And I am told that, nationwide, the fatality numbers are up again in the first half of this year. Today's hearing on self-driving cars gives us an opportunity to examine how the innovation in Michigan and across the country can literally save lives." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mark Rosekind, Mitch Bainwol, Kirk Steudle, Laura MacCleery, Ann Wilson, and Gary Shapiro.
