Issues

Law enforcement drones

On January 21, 2013, Hofstad, fellow Representatives Rick Becker, Dick Anderson, Thomas Beadle, Joe Heilman, David Monson, Karen Rohr, Nathan Toman, and Ben Hanson and Senator Margaret Sitte introduced HB 1373 to restrict the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) by law enforcement agencies. This bill would require agencies to receive a court warrant for any drone use, and such warrants would only be obtainable for felony investigations. Exceptions would be made for drones used to patrol the Canadian border, aid law enforcement agencies where there is "reasonable suspicion" that quick action is necessary, and evaluate damage during and after natural disasters. HB 1373 would also allow people injured by governmental violation of these restrictions to sue the offending law enforcement agencies. The bill would expressly prohibit surveillance by drones with lethal or non-lethal weapons, private surveillance of other private parties without informed consent, and surveillance of people exercising their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly.[2][3] On January 28, the Judiciary Committee held its first hearing on the bill.[4]
