Drone Bills Hit Turbulence in Minnesota Legislature

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota lawmakers pressing for restrictions on unmanned aerial devices are already looking to next year to pursue comprehensive drone policy legislation.

Minnesota NewsSupporters of drone restrictions say that their bills have stalled in committee for the year. The proposals range from a broad ban on the use of unmanned aircraft to specific restrictions on law enforcement use.

Minnesota isn’t alone in attempting to put drone regulations into law. More than 40 states had bills relating to the unmanned aircraft last year, and only 13 passed laws.

The Federal Aviation Administration is in the process of setting rules that dictate how small drones can share airspace.
