Long-time Senate Commerce committee aide David Quinalty has signed on with Waymo, Alphabet Inc.’s self-driving car arm, a company spokesperson said.
Quinalty will head the company’s federal policy and government affairs and develop federal public policy strategy and outreach, according to a Waymo spokesperson. The committee is eyeing self-driving car legislation in order to speed up the roll-out of safe autonomous vehicle technologies.
"We are thrilled that David will be joining us at Waymo where his deep tech policy expertise will help advance self-driving technology that will improve road safety and save thousands of lives,” Tekedra Mawakana, Global Head of Policy & Government Affairs at Waymo, told Bloomberg BNA in a statement.
Waymo’s new hire has more than a decade of experience working in technology and transportation policy in the U.S. Senate, including eight years as a senior staffer on the Commerce committee. Quinalty will begin in mid-September and work with Congress, the Department of Transportation and its National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on self-driving car policy, the spokesperson said.
Waymo belongs to several autonomous vehicle trade groups, such as the Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets and the Consumer Technology Association, which have supported legislative and agency efforts to create a nationwide framework for autonomous vehicles and expand company’s abilities to test new vehicle designs.
