Business, civic leaders push for driverless-car testing in Sacramento

Fully driverless cars could be rolling down Sacramento streets in just more than a year, following a push by Mayor Darrell Steinberg, U.S. Rep. Doris Matsui and state Sen. Richard Pan to gain federal approval for automated-vehicle testing, the three lawmakers announced Thursday.
“It’s about knocking on the doors of all these car companies and saying, ‘We want you here. Come to Sacramento,’ ” Steinberg said.
