TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida legislature will consider a bill in the 2013 session that would protect residents and visitors from prying eyes in the sky.
Sen. Joe Negron (R-Palm City) filed SB92 last month. If passed, the Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act would prohibit the use of domestic drones over the Sunshine State.
“A law enforcement agency may not use a drone to gather evidence or other information.”
The bill opens the door for any person whose privacy is violated by a drone to take civil action and would also make any evidence gathered in violation of the act inadmissible in court.Details
