By JAVIER MANJARRESAnother win for civil liberties, as the Republican Florida Legislature has unanimously pass a bill that would restrict law enforcement agencies’ use of drones.
Earlier this week, Senate Republicans, including Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, helped defeat the assault weapons bill introduced by Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) that President Obama heavily lobbyied for.
The Florida Legislature has passed a bill limiting law enforcement agencies’ use of the remotely controlled aircraft known as drones.
The House unanimously approved the Senate’s bill (SB 92) 117-0 on Wednesday with no debate.
It now goes to Gov. Rick Scott. The governor has previously said he would sign it into law.The measure restricts the use of drones to the prevention of imminent danger to life — a kidnapping or a missing child — or serious damage to property.
It also makes police get search warrants before using drones to collect evidence. An exception would be a credible threat of terrorist attack.
Only three law enforcement agencies in Florida are currently licensed by the federal government to fly drones. None are yet using them.-Fox News
