Last week, the Oregon House overwhelmingly passed a bill to nullifying warrantless drone spying.
HB2710 “provides that law enforcement agency may use drone to intercept communications only as provided under laws relating to wiretaps and other interceptions of communications. Requires destruction of images and other information acquired by use of drone within 30 days unless information is needed as evidence in criminal prosecution. Requires that public bodies that use drones adopt policies on use of drones. Requires procedure for notifying public of policies on use of drones. Prohibits use of weaponized drones by public bodies. Declares emergency, effective on passage.”
The bill cleared the House 52-7 and moves on to the Senate for consideration.
