As we mentioned in the latest NewsBrief (March 30,l 2018), multiple stakeholders initiated House Bill 2018-1314, which was introduced in the Colorado House on March 22, 2018.
The legislation will create new criminal offenses for drone operators who intentionally interfere with public safety operations. Public safety operations include, but are not limited to, firefighting, law enforcement, search and rescue, and medevac.
Because of CABA's experience in working with manned flight ops and the FAA, we were asked to assist in drafting the language of the bill.
