Venable senior policy advisor Chan Lieu was quoted in Law360 on September 8, 2017, where he discussed HR 3388, the SELF DRIVE Act, which governs how self-driving cars are manufactured, tested, and deployed and assures that the federal government will control safety standards.

"The preemption language provides significant clarity to assure self-driving vehicle manufacturers that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is responsible for national consistency through modernizing the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards to take into account self-driving vehicles," said Lieu.

The hope is that the bill will provide the industry with comfort and clarity as the deployment of self-driving cars increases.
