Rep. Scott Introduces Legislation to Limit Domestic Drone Surveillance
Rep. Austin Scott (GA-08)
Rep. Austin Scott introduced H.R. 5925, Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act of 2012, which would ensure that the use of domestic drones does not infringe on an American's 4th Amendment rights.
Rep. Scott issued the following statement:
"Drones are an effective and necessary technology for both our military and law enforcement. As drone technology advances, I expect the use of drones will expand as well. However, we must get out in front on this issue so that the use of new drone technology is consistent with the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which protects American citizens against unreasonable search and seizure."
