U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis joined 22 of her colleagues in introducing H.R. 6199, the Preserving American Privacy Act, which is designed to protect individual citizens’ privacy from the increasing domestic use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or drones. Already deployed on the battlefield and along our nation’s borders, drones are now being used domestically by private and governmental entities. Representative Lummis explains why she feels the privacy act is warranted.

H.R. 6199 would: prohibit drone surveillance without a warrant; prohibit drone surveillance by private entities without the subject’s consent; and, prohibit agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency from using drone-collected surveillance in administrative hearings.
