biss75x75Concerned with the privacy of citizens, Senator Biss has introduced legislation that would regulate the use of unmanned aircraft by law enforcement:

With the possibility of drones becoming the latest aircraft traversing the skies, Biss said this is "the exact moment states should be looking into" unmanned aircraft legislation.

"We're heading into a world where technology surveillance is unreal," the Evanston lawmaker said.

The bill, Senate Bill 1587, would require police to obtain a warrant before using a drone to gather information and would prohibit the use of on-board weapons.
