Oregon Drone Bill Would Claim the 'Airspace' Above Your ShoestringsSubmitted by PaulFanDC on Fri, 02/01/2013 - 14:57
Can the air near your shoes be considered "public airspace?" In Oregon, at least, it soon might be.
A new bill making its way through Oregon's state senate would establish something known as "Airspace of Oregon" which the state could use to regulate drone use by agencies and private citizens.
Proponents of the bill are trying to get ahead of a nationwide push to set rules for unmanned aerial vehicle use by civilians, which some advocates worry could intrude on personal privacy.
