A New Hampshire House committee will hold hearings this week on a pair of bills that are designed to regulate UAVs. State Reps. Neal Kurk and Joe Duarte have sponsored bills that would require police to get a warrant if they want to use evidence obtained by using drones as surveillance. The FAA currently doesn’t allow commercial use of UAVs, but by last month had already authorized 545 of them to fly in domestic airspace. Meanwhile, the FAA retains jurisdiction of the use of airspace, but state and local governments have the power to restrict the use of drones operated by the government or a university.
