BISMARCK – A bill limiting law enforcement’s use of unmanned aerial systems for surveillance has cleared its final hurdle in the North Dakota Legislature and is headed to Gov. Jack Dalrymple for his signature.
House members voted 78-14 Thursday to approve House Bill 1328 with changes made by the Senate, which passed it 29-17 last week.
Under the bill, information obtained from drones can’t be used as probable cause for a search warrant and isn’t admissible “in a prosecution or proceeding within the state” unless a warrant was obtained, with several exceptions.
Drones could still be used for border patrols, in instances of imminent danger to life or bodily harm, in an environmental catastrophe or for research.
