Dingell Statement on Commerce Inquiry into Connected Vehicle Technology

 Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-06) released the following statement on the White House announcement that the Department of Commerce will open an inquiry into national security risks posed by connected vehicles from countries of concern, including China. 
“As our vehicles become smarter, safer, and cleaner with emerging technologies, it’s important we fully understand the implications and potential security risks of connected vehicles, especially when this technology is coming from countries of concern, like China. Chinese automakers have already deployed their autonomous vehicles here and are using them for surveillance and to collect data, meanwhile banning American vehicles on their own streets. I will continue to work with the Biden Administration to combat the real threat this poses. America has an opportunity to herald this new era of mobility and maintain our leadership at the forefront of the global auto industry, and we must do so in a way that protects Americans’ privacy and safety and strengthens our national security.”
