Rep. Scalise: Republicans Oppose New AI Regulations

By    |   Friday, 14 June 2024 11:24 AM EDT

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., said Republicans don't intend to pass any new regulations related to artificial intelligence.

Scalise made his comments to Punchbowl News after a meeting with Republicans on the AI task force Thursday. House Republicans are opposed to legislation that sets up new agencies, establishes new licensing requirements, spends money on research and development, or favors one technology over another, a source told Punchbowl News.

"We just want to make sure we don't have government getting in the way of the innovation that's happening," Scalise told Punchbowl News. "That's allowed America to be dominant in the technology industry, and we want to continue to be able to hold that advantage going forward. If there are gaps in the laws, those are things we'd want to look at. But no new heavy regulations and billions of dollars of government money to do what's already being done in the private sector. Those aren't areas we are interested in."

Scalise said he believes AI is thriving because the government hasn't figured out how to slow it, Punchbowl News reported.

Sen. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., said at a Punchbowl News event Wednesday said that Congress needs to move fast to establish regulations for AI.
