Entry Description


STATEHOUSE (March 7, 2013) — “With the controversy regarding drone usage growing in our nation, I will continue working hard to protect Hoosiers’ privacy rights. I’ve been studying the drone issue since June, and more information is surfacing daily on the availability of these small aircraft within our country and abroad.


“Our rights are guaranteed to us in our Constitution, but it is up to us to protect those rights. That’s why I’ve authored Senate Resolution 27, which calls for the General Assembly to create a study committee to research and report on drone uses and abilities. A bipartisan look at this topic will provide legislators and residents with invaluable insight about the impact of drones for our state, allowing us to better determine whether domestic use of these unmanned aerial vehicles threatens our rights.


“Although I was the first Indiana legislator to focus on this issue, I’m pleased several of my Senate colleagues have approached me to sign onto this legislation. The seriousness of drone usage has become more evident.”
