OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The public affairs network TVW wanted to use a drone to film the state Capitol in Olympia for a documentary on drones.

The state Department of Enterprise Services said no.

The Olympian reports (http://bit.ly/1x1Va2Z ) the agency says filming the campus may violate the privacy of tenants and visitors as well as posing an unnecessary public safety risk. It also said the drone could disrupt normal conduct of state business.

TVW hoped to capture the footage for a one-hour documentary it’s preparing on the use of drones.
