Submission + - Congressman releases draft of legislation on domestic drones and privacy (huffingtonpost.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Police would be required to get a warrant to use drones for certain types of surveillance under legislation introduced on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. The proposed bill would also tighten regulations on what kind of data can be collected by the government and private companies and how it can be used.

To safeguard against abuses, Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), co-chair of the Bipartisan Congressional Privacy Caucus and a longtime member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, released a draft of the Drone Aircraft Privacy and Transparency Act of 2012 on Wednesday.
