Iowa House approves drone regulation bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The use of drones would be strictly regulated under a bill approved by the Iowa House.

The bill received overwhelming support Wednesday, clearing the House on an 87-12 vote, though several lawmakers expressed concern the bill lacks clarity and might be overreaching. Even some of those with concerns supported the bill, which goes to the Senate.

The bill would require state and law enforcement officials to seek permission before buying or using drones, but details haven't been worked out about what agency would grant such requests.

Republican Rep. Jarad Klein, who sponsored the bill, says he wants to keep ahead of an evolving issue as drones become more common. He and other lawmakers stressed, though, that the legislation would be changed before it could become law.
