BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Legislature has passed a bill that limits how drones can be used by law enforcement.

The House approved the legislation Thursday. The Senate endorsed it last week. It now heads to Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s desk for his signature.

The measure says information from unmanned aerial vehicles can’t be used as probable cause for a search warrant. And information obtained by drones can’t be used in court unless a warrant is obtained.

The bill also makes it illegal to use drones for private surveillance or for carrying lethal weapons.
