HB560 would prohibit the use of drones by law enforcement without a warrant in Georgia in most cases, and would make drone data obtained without a warrant inadmissible in court.

STATUS: The bill was introduced in 2013 and referred to  the Judiciary Non-Civil Committee. It remains alive in that committee.

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW to make sure the legislation has the support it needs to move forward.

1. Call your the Chair of the Committee. Be strong, but respectful. Urge them to support HB560 and move the bill forward in their committee. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why.

A phone call holds as much as 10x the impact of an email.

Chairman: Rick Golick 404.656.5943; rich.golick@house.ga.gov
Vice-chair: Dustin Hightower 404.656.0152; dustin.hightower@house.ga.gov

2. Please CALL and EMAIL all other members of the committee. Strongly, but politely let them know that you want them to PASS HB560 so it can get a vote in the full House. Ask them each for a YES vote. If they say they’re opposed, ask them why. If they’re undecided or will not commit to a YES vote, let them know you will be following up in a few days after they have a chance to consider it.

Again, make sure to contact them with a phone call rather than just an email.
