Episode Info:

Legislation to regulate autonomous vehicles got hung up in Congress last year, but that hasn't stopped developers from rolling test vehicles onto the streets. This special episode of Bloomberg Government’s “Suspending the Rules” looks at how the industry is evolving without firm federal rules. The episode features Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) and Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.), who are looking to restart momentum for an autonomous vehicle bill that stalled in the last Congress, as well as stakeholders from Toyota Motor Corp. and safety advocate groups. It also includes a trip to a pilot project in Houston delivering Kroger Co. groceries in autonomous vehicles.
