This legislation would allow for the operation of autonomous vehicles within “project boundaries” which may include but are not limited to areas within city and county limits and areas maintained by public authorities. This bill would allow operation of autonomous vehicles after submission of proposed boundaries to the department of revenue. At least one month prior to the start of a project, the manufacturer must send the exact location and boundaries the vehicle will be operating within. Local governments would be preempted from imposing fees, registration requirements or any other regulation in regards to a project.
