The approval by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce of a broad bill that would give the green light to autonomous vehicle usage on U.S. roads is drawing both praise and criticism from different interest groups.

H.R. 3388, the Safely Ensuring Lives Future Deployment and Research in Vehicle Evolution or “SELF DRIVE” Act, would “ensure” that autonomous vehicles can make their way onto U.S. roads safely and quickly, according to the R Street Institute, a think tank based in Washington, D.C.

“The act achieves all three of our key goals for legislation of this kind and provides the regulatory certainty necessary for manufacturers to move forward with aggressive development and deployment schedules that could literally save lives,” noted R Street Senior Fellow Ian Adams in a statement.
