European Parliament committees approve AI Act proposal
European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs and Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection each approved the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act. "We are on the verge of building a real landmark legislation for the digital landscape, not only for Europe but also for the entire world," Italian Member of European Parliament and AI Act co-rapporteur Brando Benifei said. The proposal is scheduled for a final debate in Parliament 13 June and will head to trilogue negotiations following a vote.
