Wednesday: Your Voice Needed at Autonomous Vehicles Legislative Hearing

The Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on Transportation will have a public hearing on autonomous vehicles.  They will be taking testimony on a bunch of bills. Of interest for Pirates is S.1945, which has the strongest provisions relating to privacy and security.

The hearing is at 3pm this Wednesday at the State House in Room A-1.

If you have academic or professional expertise on the topic of autonomous vehicles and privacy or security, or if you may have availability to testify next Wednesday (or ideally both), please get in touch with Alex Marthews of Restore the Fourth at digitalfourth@protonmail.com. You can find the complete list of bills at this hearing as well as links to the text of the bills at https://malegislature.gov/Events/Hearings/Detail/2538.
