What's true in the SB15 (drone control) bill and why does the ACLU want it stopped?

I am confused.

1. They want a moratorium

The statistic quoted in a Senate committee hearing on Tuesday says a lot about why lawmakers are quickly moving to regulate unmanned drone aircraft: officials estimate 10,000 of the vehicles will be in the nation's skies by the end of the decade.

"To put that into perspective," said state Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Pacoima, "at any given time, there are about 5,000 airplanes in U.S. airspace." ...

Both proposals would create a new regulatory structure for using the remotely controlled aircraft in California. Padilla's bill, SB 15, would add the planes and helicopters to existing definitions of what can be considered an invasion of privacy. Both bills would generally require a warrant from police and law enforcement that want to use the devices. AB 1327 also includes a provision that officers would have to destroy surveillance video or photos within ten days....

"You know, it's a wartime technology being brought to your neighborhood," said Valerie Small Navarro of the ACLU California. "So it makes sense to actually adopt a moratorium and think about it carefully."

3. Does the bill address private use?

Can a private corproation, or even a private individual, use them to spy on one's neighbors? What are the limits.
