Unmanned Aircraft Bill: Lawrence Osborn

Lawrence Osborn

You likely don't like the idea of having anyone or anything monitor your life. In today’s world, that could mean surveillance by an unmanned aircraft better known as a drone. Coming up for a hearing tomorrow is a bill that would prohibit the use of unmanned aircraft, except by law enforcement agencies with conditions for their use and reporting attached. While all that may sound good to you, Lawrence Osborn says there are still problems with the way the bill is written. Lawrence Osborn is a member of the Aerospace Advisory Committee and he joined us in our studio to elaborate on his concerns.
