One week from today, Covington will host its first webinar in a series on connected and automated vehicles (“CAVs”).  The webinar will take place on February 27 from 12 to 1 p.m. Eastern Time. During the webinar, Covington’s regulatory and legislative experts will cover developments in U.S. law and regulations relating to CAVs. Those topics include:

  • Where Congress stands on CAV legislation, including the AV START Act, the SELF DRIVE Act, and infrastructure legislation.
  • State-level legislative, regulatory, and policy developments, including a closer look at California’s regulations.
  • Updates and trends specific to the autonomous aviation industry.
  • Foreign investment and export controls impacting CAVs.

Our speakers are:

  • Holly Fechner (Legislative/Public Policy, Former Senate Policy Director)
