Illinois SB1587, Freedom from Drone Surveillance Act, passed the State Senate Committee on Criminal Law with a 7-2 vote. It will now have a hearing and final vote in the full State Senate on April 10th. Your help is needed right now to get it passed!
Although the bill provides for some exceptions, if passed into law a vast majority of drone use would be banned. Law enforcement would be banned in almost every situation from using a drone without warrant. This is a BIG step forward for the privacy in the State of Illinois. Please act now to support SB1587.
