Governor Dannel P. Malloy recently signed Senate Bill 260 (“SB 260”) into law. SB 260 authorizes the Office of Policy and Management, the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection to establish a pilot program pursuant to which certain municipalities may permit manufacturers to test autonomous vehicles on those municipalities’ roads. SB 260 also creates a 15-member task force to study autonomous vehicles and develop recommendations for regulating such vehicles. The task force must submit interim reports of its findings and submit a final report by January 1, 2019.
