House Republicans Send Letter to Energy and Commerce Committee (HECC) in Support of AV Legislation

This week U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Greg Walden (R-OR), Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), and Rep. Robert Latta (R-OH) sent House Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone Jr. a letter requesting once again that the Committee take up self-driving vehicle legislation. Last Congress, the Committee put together a bipartisan bill, the SELF DRIVE Act, that passed in the House but, ultimately, failed to be considered on the Senate floor. The letter outlines the positive impact self-driving legislation would have to the American public including the potential to save lives, increase mobility for those without easy access to public transportation and maintaining international competitiveness.
