Contributing to the ongoing debate of whether states should regulate
drones for high-tech spying in the U.S., State Sen. Daniel Biss
(D-Evanston) proposed legislation that would require police to get a
search warrant before using an unmanned drone to gather evidence.
proposal would ban the use of lethal and nonlethal weapons on the
drones when it is not an emergency, and would require drone information
to be destroyed unless it is part of an investigation.
"We're heading into a world where technology surveillance is unreal," Biss said to the Chicago Tribune.
year, President Barack Obama signed a Federal Aviation Administration
mandate requesting drones be incorporated into the national system. More
than 20 states have proposed legislation to combat unmanned aircraft
flying over U.S. airspace.
