ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is meeting with Florida’s airport directors as part of a push to garner support for new technology that could protect airports and other sensitive areas from drones.

Nelson was in Orlando on Friday meeting with airport directors from Orlando, Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, Sarasota, Clearwater and Panama City.

Nelson is hoping to insert a measure into legislation that would help airports install technologies that could thwart unwanted drones.

The technologies would be able to shut down drones that stray into no-fly-zones or use sensors to intercept drones.
