Senator Says Drones Should Be Regulated

Story by WBGZ Radio

Best known for their use by the U.S. military in Afghanistan, one state senator says unmanned drone aircraft could soon be utilized to keep watch over Illinois.  Democratic Senator Daniel Biss of Evanston says because drones could soon become a new age crime-fighting tool for Illinois law enforcement, he wants to regulate their use before they get here.  

Biss tells the "Sun-Times" quote, "Now is the time to lay down appropriate privacy guidelines."  Biss said because the technology is still emerging legislators have time to quote, "set a series of modest restrictions that will guard the privacy of all persons in Illinois."
