This is the June 27, 2017 hearing titled "Self-Driving Vehicle Legislation," held before the House Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Robert E. Latta: "When you think about who drives, you realize that it is pretty much everyone: urban and rural, young and old, and everyone and everywhere in between. Tragically, however, traffic fatalities are on the rise. Last year there were over 40,000 fatalities and over 2 million injuries on our Nation's highways. Our goal today is to enact the right policies to encourage self-driving technologies that can drastically reduce those opportunities to address this problem. One of the most important pieces is to define the right roles for the Federal, State, and local governments. The need for this framework was laid out by the Obama administration just last year from the front bumper to the back bumper." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mitch Bainwol, David L. Strickland, William C. Wallace, Alan B. Morrison, Tim Day, and John Bozzella.
