Congressman Fights To Stop “Flying Robots Endlessly Watching Americans”

• Prison Planet

Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey, who co-Chairs the Bi-Partisan Congressional Privacy Caucus, reintroduced legislation he first put forth last year to ensure constitutional protections are maintained in the face of the huge expansion in the use of drones by law enforcement and government agencies.

Markey’s Drone Aircraft Privacy and Transparency Act (DAPTA) would require privacy protection provisions relating to data collection and minimization, disclosure, warrant requirements for law enforcement, and enforcement measures in the licensing and operation of drones.
