An Update on Drone Law


January, 2017

 

In 2016, the California legislature sent six bills to the governor, who signed two and vetoed four.

The two bills are:

  1. AB1680 - Makes it a misdemeanor to interfere with first responders or emergency personnel at the scene of an emergency
  2. SB807 -  Protects emergency first responders from liability for damage to a drone that is interfering with the responder's ability to provide emergency service

Also, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has released its final rule on commercial drone operation, which may effect any state laws and local ordinances.
