Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton once killed a self-driving car, but fellow District pol Mary Cheh apparently has no problem with robot-kind.

The Ward 3 councilmember once pushed legislation for self-driving cars. Now she’ll take it a step further tomorrow, when she plans to have pro-robot legislation delivered to the D.C. Council’s secretary by a robot.

According to a press release from her office, Cheh and the makers of an autonomous delivery robot will hold a press conference tomorrow in front of the Wilson Building. Then, Cheh will give one of the robots a copy of legislation legalizing the delivery service and “instruct the [robot] to drive into the Wilson Building to file the legislation.”
