CALL NOW: VOTE NO on AB 1327

California’s drone bill AB1327 would allow law enforcement and public agencies to use drones, in many cases without a warrant.

Under this bill, no warrant would be necessary for drone use over traffic accidents, for fires, or to look for marijuana growing in state parks or wilderness, for hot pursuit of a suspect, or if law enforcement feels that officers may be in harm’s way.

The exceptions to the warrant requirement leave a drone-sized loophole that will allow police to use drones basically whenever they want.

Read the drone bill AB1327.

The bill has passed the CA Assembly, and has been referred to the CA Senate Committee on Public Safety. Here is what you can do:

TAKE ACTION:
  • CALL the senators in charge of the Public Safety committee. Tell them to vote NO on AB1327. Tell them you do not want any drones in California skies. NO DRONES. NO LOOPHOLES.
    Loni Hancock, Chair: (916) 651-4009
    Joel Anderson, Vice Chair: (916) 651-4036 
  • CALL the members of the public safety committee. Tell them to vote NO on AB1327. Tell them you do not want any drones in California skies. NO DRONES. NO LOOPHOLES.
    Kevin de León: (916) 651-4022
    Steve Knight: (916) 651-4021
    Carol Liu: (916) 651-4025
    Holly Mitchell: (916) 651-4026
    Darrell Steinberg: (916) 651-4006
Thank you very much for speaking out to STOP THE DRONES!
