Drone Legislation Passes Kentucky Senate Committee

Feb 18, 2016

Legislation to criminalize the use of drones for harassment, voyeurism or facilitation of a burglary is on its way to the Kentucky House floor.  The measure, sponsored by Bullitt County Representative Linda Belcher, won approval from the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday.  Belcher says the impetus for this bill stemmed from an incident in her home county.  “We had some ladies out at the pool and we had a drone fly over and we had a dad who shot it down," Belcher explained. "He was a good shot.  He killed it.  So, he is now known as the drone slayer."​
