Schumer Releases AI Policy Roadmap

Framework offers regulatory approach, pushes committees to develop detailed policy

May 15, 2024

On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and the Bipartisan Senate AI Working Group released their roadmap for artificial intelligence policy in the US. The policy framework offers a thoughtful roadmap for the nation’s approach to AI regulation, backing policies that would expand access to AI resources through projects like NAIRR and support US competitiveness internationally. The document leaves more detailed policy decisions on issues like copyright and licensing to Senate committees.

“This framework takes a smart approach to AI policymaking, examining the opportunities and challenges that AI poses and addressing each of those directly,” said Chamber of Progress Senior Director of Technology Policy Todd O’Boyle. “What you won’t find in this framework is AI scaremongering or calls for a one-size-fits-all federal agency to regulate this wide-ranging technology. There’s lots of work to be done filling in the details, but what the Senate working group has laid out is a strong start.”

Today’s federal framework stands in stark contrast to state-level efforts to regulate artificial intelligence, many of which have taken a broad approach to defining AI technology that penalizes innovation in the tech industry. On Tuesday, Chamber of Progress held a press conference with Colorado AI companies urging Governor Jared Polis to veto state AI legislation. Chamber of Progress is also active in opposing AI legislation under consideration in California.
