Iowa House passes autonomous vehicle bill

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The Iowa House on Tuesday passed a bill regulating self-operating vehicles in the state.

It says cars can 'self operate' on highways, but only if it can do three things: pose a minimal risk in case of malfunction, comply with state traffic and vehicle safety laws and manufacturers must certify the vehicle for federal safety standards.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
