Okla. representative supporting drone use with study, restrictions
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma state representative is planning an interim study on the use of drones in our state.
Rep. Paul Wesselhoft said the study will likely begin next month.
He said he supports the use of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with cameras, in situations like searching for a missing child.
However, he said, some guidelines will be needed to protect Oklahomans’ privacy.
Some of the items mentioned in his bill include keeping police from using drones to target someone without a warrant.
Also, he said drones should not be equipped with weapons.
