AN ACT establishing the New York task force on automated  vehicle  tech-

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The Legislature finds that  automated
vehicle technology offers widely anticipated and revolutionary potential
for  the  transportation  sector.  Among the unprecedented opportunities
offered by this technology are inclusive  mobility  options  to  benefit
