Producer/Host: Amy Browne

“An Act To Protect the Privacy of Citizens from Domestic Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Use,” (LD236) sponsored by Senator John Patrick, was discussed yesterday at a public hearing before the judiciary committee in Augusta. And before you think domestic drones a thing of the future, you should know that Shenna Bellows of the Maine ACLU was able to bring a few of them with her for “show and tell”

Today we hear testimony from Shenna Bellows, Executive Director of the ACLU of Maine, and Bruce Gagnon of Maine Veteran’s for Peace, as well as questions from the committee members.
