Bipartisan Committee Members Highlight Self Driving Initiatives at NAIAS


Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), #SubDCCP Chairman Bob Latta (R-OH), #SubEnergy Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) toured the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit today to see first-hand how the American automobile industry is leveraging new technology to become a global industry leader in innovation and consumer safety.

Earlier this congress, the committee-led SELF DRIVE Act, the first ever legislation to update federal law for self-driving technology, passed the House unanimously. This legislation will help advance the goals of improving roadway safety, increasing mobility for seniors and those with disabilities, and create new jobs here at home.
