On Oct. 2, 2017, Sen. Cantwell, Maria [D-WA] introduced the Smart Cities and Communities Act of 2017 (S.1904) to “promote smart technologies and systems to improve community livability, services, communication, safety, mobility, energy productivity, and resilience to natural and manmade disasters, to reduce costs, traffic congestion, and air pollution, and to promote economic growth and opportunities for communities of all sizes…”
