Covered at Reason 24/7: ACLU Strategist Praises Rhode Island Domestic Drone Bill


Allie Bohm of
the ACLU has praised the domestic drone bill being considered by
legislators in Rhode Island. The bill requires public
accountability for the use of drones by law enforcement officials,
that UAVs not be equipped with weapons, and a ban on data
retention. 


From
The Atlantic
:



As anxiety about domestic drone use continues to mount, at least
30 states are weighing new laws that would regulate them. A Rhode
Island proposal is among the best, according
to Allie Bohm
 at the ACLU. Unlike her, I haven't read
every bill introduced by a state legislature. But I have read the
bill The Ocean State is mulling, and many of its provisions
desserve wider attention. I'd be thrilled if something with this
many civil liberties protections was actually passed and
enforced.
