Law enforcement drones
On January 24, 2013, Rosendale introduced SB 196, "an act limiting the use of unmanned aerial vehicles by law enforcement and private users; prohibiting the use of unlawfully obtained information as evidence in court; and amending section 46-1-202, MCA." His bill would ban the private and public use of drones for information collection with exceptions for law enforcement agencies which obtain warrants and for patrolling public lands and the Canadian border. Any information illegally by law enforcement agency drones would not be admissible as evidence in court. Rosendale's bill was less restrictive than Senator Robyn Driscoll's SB 150, which would not allow agencies to seek warrants for drone use. SB 196 passed the Senate 32-17 on February 5, and the House 87-11 on April 11. Gov. Steve Bullock (R) signed the bill into law on May 1, 2013.
In August 2013, Rosendale filed paperwork with the FEC to start raising money for a congressional run. Rosendale has not decided if he will run for the House or the Senate. He is waiting to hear which office Republican Representative Steve Daines will seek in 2014.
