House passes bill exempting driverless cars from current safety standards

The House yesterday passed a bipartisan bill, called the “Self Drive Act,” addressing driverless cars.

Among other things, the bill would allow car companies to introduce as many as 100,000 such vehicles a year — exempted from safety standards while the technology is developing. At the same time, the bill would bar states from implementing laws and safety standards governing the new technology.

USA Today reports on the bill here. The Hill has this article.
