Michigan poised to approve self-driving vehicle testing

Michigan could become the latest state to allow testing of self-driving of cars on public roads if the Michigan House approves legislation already approved by the Senate.
When lawmakers return to work the week of Dec. 3, the state House’s Commerce Committee is expected to take up bills permitting testing and limiting the liability of auto suppliers and manufacturers of vehicles that are modified for testing. The Senate already has approved the legislation, and it could be on Gov. Rick Snyder’s desk by year’s end.
