Two US Congress committees are looking to revive a bill aimed at accelerating the development of self-driving cars.

The Committee on Energy and Commerce released a statement saying that it was working with the Senate Commerce Committee to ask auto makers, safety groups and other industry stakeholders for their input on developing a bipartisan, bicameral self-driving car bill.

In December 2018, Congress abandoned efforts to pass the ‘AV Start’ legislation on self-driving cars.

According to news site Reuters, the Energy and Commerce Committee released a statement that said it was “committed to finding a solution that balances the American creative spirit with a clear federal framework that advances technology that will save lives, improve mobility for so many, and drive economic growth. We believe an open process will deliver an outcome we can all support.”
