Legistlation being pushed to control drone spy planes



WASHINGTON — Thousands of civilian drones are expected in U.S. skies, including Oregon, within a few years and there are concerns that they could be used to spy on Americans.

Legislative efforts are being pushed in several states to regulate the unmanned aircraft.

Varied legislation involving drones was introduced this year in more than 40 states.

Many of those bills seek to regulate law enforcement’s use of drones by requiring search warrants for gathering evidence and other information.
