California Assembly approves limits on drones

The bill, by Assemblymembers Jeff Gorell (R-Camarillo), Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) and Bill Quirk (D-Hayward), would require public agencies to destroy data collected by drones within six months and would ban the weaponization of drones in California.

It also would require law enforcement to obtain a warrant to use a drone, except in certain emergency situations.

"We also have to recognize there are going to have to be some parameters in place around how we use unmanned aerial vehicles," he added. "We want Californians to feel confident that this legislative body is protecting their right to privacy."

The bill, AB 1327, passed on a 59-5 vote.
