Nov. 17, 2016—On Tuesday, the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade held a hearing on self-driving cars.

The hearing, Disrupter Series: Self-Driving Cars, is the latest in a series examining the effects of federal policy on emerging technologies. During the hearing, members addressed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Federal Automated Vehicles Policy guidance that was issued in September.

Subcommittee chairman Michael Burgess (R-Texas) praised NHTSA’s proactive guidance of self-driving vehicles but expressed concern over the implementation.

Mark Rosekind, administrator of the NHTSA, responded that the guidelines represent NHTSA’s best approach for the time being and were designed to be flexible.
