Legislative Bill 693 provides immunity from civil prosecution for emergency responders who damage an “unmanned aircraft,” or drone, in the performance of their duties so long as they reasonably believe the drone was interfering with the performance of their duties. The bill also makes it illegal to use a drone to peep or spy into residences in a way that would violate normal expectations of privacy. Law enforcement officers, too, are offered protections relating to the use of drones in some circumstances.
