Gov. Terry Branstad, R-Iowa, is up for looking at legislation that would regulate the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Iowa.

However, Branstad notes that the use of UAVs by law enforcement agencies ‘would have to be balanced with citizens' constitutional rights and concern for potentially unintended consequences.’
