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
David Goldwater - Nevada Lobbyist
Bryant Walker Smith (Moderator) - Resident Fellow, Center for Internet and
