California Tell Your Elected Officials You Support Drones


California bill AB1327 would allow law enforcement and public agencies to use drones. This means technology and service jobs for Californians as well as savings for the taxpayer. Drone end-users can support this bill while still supporting the 4th amendment.

AB1327 will let State, and local agencies use drones to better manage the public’s resources. Drones will also be used to help save lives and property of all Californians.
