Nevada Senators Pass Drone Privacy Bill

Posted: Updated:
Nevada senators have passed a bill that would create a regulatory framework for drones and seeks to protect privacy.

Democratic Assemblyman Elliot Anderson is sponsoring Assembly Bill 239, which unanimously passed the Senate on Tuesday.

The measure would clarify existing law and creates new regulations on how police agencies and public citizens can fly unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones. The measure sets limits on how low a drone can fly before trespassing and requires a warrant for certain police observations by a drone on a private home.

Several law enforcement and economic development agency lobbyists testified in favor of the bill and said it would balance privacy concerns without impeding the emerging drone industry.

The measure passed unanimously out of the Assembly in April. (AP)
