UTAH LAWMAKERS ARE SENDING MIXED SIGNALS THIS YEAR, BY WORKING TO ATTRACT THE UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS INDUSTRY TO OUR STATE... WHILE ALSO PUSHING TO PROTECT PRIVACY, AGAINST THE USE OF DRONE AIRCRAFT.

A SENATE COMMITTEE WAS SCHEDULED TO HEAR A BILL TUESDAY, THAT WOULD REQUIRE LAW ENFORCEMENT TO GET A WARRANT TO USE THE DEVICES.

IT ALSO LIMITS WHAT DATA CAN BE COLLECTED.

SENATOR HOWARD STEPHENSON, IS SPONSORING THE MEASURE, SAYING DRONE TECHNOLOGY IS SO NEW, THERE ARE NO PRIVACY PROTECTIONS IN PLACE.
