BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s House has endorsed a measure that would impose penalties for using drones to invade someone’s privacy.

Representatives approved the bill 49-44 on Tuesday. The bill makes it illegal to use an “unmanned aerial vehicle system” to spy on or record someone in a private place, including through a window.

The penalty is a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,500.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
