Issues

Law enforcement drones

On December 5, 2012, Negron introduced CS/SB 92, his proposed "Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act." Negron's bill would ban law enforcement use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) with exceptions for counter-terrorism operations, surveillance for which a warrant has been obtained, and surveillance for which law enforcement personnel have "reasonable suspicion" that immediate action is needed. SB 92 would also allow people injured by governmental violation of these restrictions to sue the offending law enforcement agencies. The Florida State Senate's Community Affairs Committee rated the bill as "favorable" 9-0 on February 6, 2013, and the bill was forwarded to the Judiciary Committee.[1][2] Representative Ritch Workman introduced a similar bill, HB 119, in the Florida House of Representatives on January 5, 2013.[3]
