This is the May 23, 2018 hearing titled "The Impact of Autonomous Vehicles on the Future of Insurance," held before the House Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance of the Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Sean Duffy: "Now, while the focus of today's hearing will be on insurance, other committees have already been looking at the issue, and I suspect Judiciary may look at AVs [autonomous vehicles] from a product liability perspective as opposed to our insurance perspective. Reality is catching up with movies like Blade Runner, Demolition Man, Minority Report. We have seen the capabilities of fully autonomous vehicles being tested in cities like San Francisco, Miami, Pittsburgh, and more. Auto insurance policies have already been impacted by AVs. For instance, we already have level two and level three AVs on the road wherein vehicles assist the driver in accelerating, decelerating, and steering." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ian Adams, David Carlson, Ryan D. Gammelgard, and Jack Gillis.
