Senator Chuck Schumer Wants Private Drones Better Regulated Over U.S. Soil

08.04.14 |

One top New York lawmaker says he knows what to do about the proliferation of drones in the skies over the U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer says he wants to see them better regulated. Schumer says privately operated drones pose not only a safety issue, but one of privacy as well. Schumer says it shouldn't be legal for someone to send a drone to peer into someone's bedroom window and, therefore, the use of drones by private investigators should be banned. And he says the FAA should have stronger regulations in place for their use commercially by the end of the year.
