Bill Would Speed Use Of Commercial Drones

Commercial drones would get their wings under a new bill introduced Tuesday by Sens. Cory Booker and John Hoeven. The Commercial UAS Modernization Act would set interim guidelines for the testing and use of commercial drones while the Federal Aviation Administration finalizes its rules. In addition, the bill would give the FAA more oversight authority by creating a deputy administrator exclusively responsible for the safe integration of drones in U.S. airspace.
