Self-Driving Coalition Applauds Senator Thune

Washington, D.C. - The Self-Driving Coalition released the below statement from general counsel Ariel Wolf on Senator Thune's leadership to include autonomous vehicles in the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act:

“The Self-Driving Coalition thanks Senator Thune for his continued leadership to support the future promise of autonomous vehicles. His proposed amendment would reinforce and ensure sustained American leadership in AV development. Its failure to be included is a missed opportunity to create American jobs and unlock billions of dollars of investments in the U.S. economy as well as provide greater mobility access.  We look forward to continuing work with the Senate and House of Representatives on legislation that paves the way for AVs’ safety, mobility, economic and environmental benefits.”
