The Senate is now at ease, and members are milling around, awaiting SB 1134aa, the drone bill, from the House. The House has just begun debate on the much-amended measure, which seeks to restrict the use of unmanned drones without a warrant, to protect privacy. "You need a warrant for targeting specific individuals or specific private property," Luker told the House, explaining the amendments. "This is our best effort at this time, given the amount of time we have in the session, to deal with ... expectations of privacy vs. new technology," he said.
His opening comment: "The drones are coming."
