Alaska House Bill 209 HB 209 sponsored by Rep. Higgins, was introduced. The legislation prohibits the use of evidence obtained by unmanned aerial vehicles, called drones, without a warrant to be used in a criminal investigation. It further prohibits the equipping of drones with “explosives” or a “dangerous instrument” (learn more here).

STATUS – referred to the House Judiciary committee where it will need to pass by majority vote before moving on to the next committee.
