DENVER (AP) - Colorado lawmakers have given up their efforts to put new limits on drone surveillance.

The Senate voted Tuesday to ax the last surviving measure of the year to limit drones. Sponsors say they couldn’t find a way to limit surveillance without trampling on free speech rights or the ability of law enforcement to carry out investigations.

This is the third year the state Legislature has failed to craft a bill limiting surveillance by drones or other remote recording technology.

Republican Sen. Kevin Lundberg sponsored the failed efforts and vowed Tuesday to try again next year. He says advancing technology leaves citizens unsure how to make sure their privacy is protected.
