MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The use of unmanned drones for surveillance would be restricted under a bill that has passed the Wisconsin state Senate.

The bipartisan measure approved Tuesday on a voice vote would outlaw deploying a drone capable of making video or audio recordings in areas where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy.

It also would require police to obtain warrants before using drones to collect evidence except in emergency situations. It also would make it a felony to sell, possess or operate a weaponized drone.

The bill has previously passed the Assembly and now heads to Gov. Scott Walker.
