State lawmakers considered regulating “unmanned aerial vehicles” in 2014, ultimately passing a narrow law that bans police and state troopers from using drones to catch speeders.
Republican Representative Jarad Klein of Keota is leading the discussion on drones.
“You see how much the technology has advanced, beyond where we thought it would ever be,” Klein says. “I don’t anticipate rushing this by any means, but we’re going to keep it moving along. We’re going to address the concerns that everybody’s bringing up and make sure we’re good to roll.”
Two legislators met with critics and supporters of the proposed bill this morning. Thirty-three states have some sort of law that addresses the use of drones.
