Support for Autonomous Vehicles (AVs)

The Office of the Governor established a work group to assess the state government's role in cultivating the safe development of AVs. The work group includes representatives from the Washington Departments of Transportation, Commerce, and Labor, as well as the Washington State Patrol, Traffic Safety Commission, and the Governor's Office. The group will collaborate with industry representatives, stakeholders, and government representatives, to request updates on AV pilot programs and inform proposed changes to policies, rules, and statutes within the state.
