Don’t get your hopes up for legislation in the immediate future. Although this is a bipartisan measure, there’s no timetable for completing a bill, let alone a surefire guarantee that it will become law. It won’t be surprising if the eventual bill passes, though. Both sides of the aisle have strong incentives to shake up the rules: Republicans may get looser regulation, Democrats may get safer cars and everyone gets boosts to their local economies. The time it takes to draft the legislation could easily pay off if it helps usher in a driverless future.
