OKLAHOMA CITY - A bill that would have required law enforcement to get a warrant before using a drone for surveillance has been put on hold.

House Bill 1556 will be held over for the next session.

Officials said an interim study on privacy issues related to drones will be proposed in place of the bill.

The move comes as a result of opposition from Gov. Mary Fallin.

Experts said there were concerns the legislation would jeopardize the state's application with the FAA to serve as an unmanned aerial test site.

ACLU's Ryan Kiesel joined us to talk about the bill and, if it passed, what that would mean for Oklahomans.
