No Vote On Drones In WA State

SEATTLE (AP) — Despite having support from Democrats, Republicans, civil liberties advocates and those concerned over government intrusion, a measure regulating the use and purchases of drones by state agencies and local municipalities died in Olympia without getting a vote. The bill saw opposition from one of the most influential players in Olympia: The Boeing Co. The aerospace manufacturer, one of the largest employers in the state, argued the bill would hurt future jobs in the growing unmanned aerial vehicle industry. The bill would have mandated that law enforcement agencies obtain approval from their respective legislative government before buying a drone.
