[government news] Self-driving car legislation paves way for Tesla Autopilot development

The House passed a bipartisan driverless car bill Wednesday, paving the way for Tesla and other manufacturers to develop autonomous vehicles without having to hurdle substantial legislative barriers.

The bill opens the playing field for companies to develop and test new driverless technology without having to answer to individual state legislators. In addition to relaxing laws on the implementation of the technology, the bill also grants car manufacturers with the ability to deploy up to 100,000 self-driving vehicles per year that don’t meet standard safety regulations. The first year will be capped at 25,000 autonomous cars.

For Tesla, relaxed regulation means it has more freedom to test and develop driverless technology.
