An Oral History of Nevada's Groundbreaking Regulation of Self-Driving Vehicles

6:00pm Reception - Neukom Faculty Lounge - Neukom Building - Stanford Law School

7:00pm Panel Begins - Room 190 - Crown Building - Stanford Law School

Come hear the story of an extraordinary new law from the people who made it happen. Two years ago, no state legislature had even contemplated self-driving cars. Now, three states have passed legislation, several more are considering it, and Nevada's DMV has issued the world's first autonomous vehicle test plates to Google. What happened? The answer reveals how the legislative and regulatory process actually works -- and provides important lessons to others that may follow Nevada's path. Join Nevada's Assembly transportation chair and DMV director, Google's Nevada lobbyist, and others for a candid discussion of the recent past and the not-so-distant future.

Panelists include:
Marilyn Dondero Loop - Chair, Assembly Transportation Committee
Bruce Breslow - Director, Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles
Troy Dillard - Deputy Director, Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles
David Estrada - Legal Director, Google
Bryant Walker Smith (Moderator)- Resident Fellow, Center for Internet and Society

Is there any chance this event can be taped? I REALLY want to go, but I'm in Arizona currently. I would love to view this event though, even if it's not live.

To whom it may concern,
Could you make a copy of this presentation publically avalaible. As part of my coursework I have heavily studied autonomous transportation. Along with my classmates, I will find this presentation very insightful. However, will not be able to make it cross country.

Yes. We do plan to record the presentation and make it publicly available through our website and Youtube channel.
