Michigan lawmakers have proposed a new bill concerning self-driving cars.
The new bill would make it so that self-driving cars could be used on public roads in the state. This would allow automakers more flexibility to test their vehicles and could help it stay ahead of other states looking to draw in self-driving car companies.
The bill would be good news for companies such as General Motors Company (GM), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCAU) and Ford Motor Company (F), all of which operate out of Detroit.
