AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A Republican lawmaker in Maine is hoping to pass a bill he said would protect children in the state from unauthorized surveillance by drones.
The proposal from Rep. John Andrews of Paris would create a new state law the legislator said in a statement would “prevent unauthorized drone spying on a person in their domicile where they have an expectation of privacy.”
Andrews is asking the state’s Legislative Council to allow his proposal to go through despite the fact a legislation deadline has passed. He said the law would establish penalties for people convicted of surveilling underage children.
The Legislative Council is expected to discuss whether to consider the proposal this session on Thursday.
