Two UAV Bills Turn Up in Georgia State Legislature

Two bills regarding the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have emerged in the Georgia state legislature.

One bill, sponsored by state Rep. Harry Geisinger, R-Roswell, would allow UAVs to be used under specific circumstances, such as university research, military operations and law enforcement activities, according to an article by Savannahnow.com.

The other bill, sponsored by state Rep. Stephen Allison, R-Blairsville, ‘would prohibit manned or unmanned aircraft from flying within 100 feet above the surface of a property for surveillance without a search warrant or permission of the property owner.’

A hearing has not been scheduled for the bills, which have been sent to the same House committee.
