Bill would give civil immunity to those who destroy drones over private property

Drones over Private Property

OKLAHOMA CITY — A bill headed to the Senate floor would make property owners who destroy drones flying over their land immune from civil action, if there is a reasonable expectation of privacy.

Sen. Ralph Shortey, R-Oklahoma City, is the author of Senate Bill 660.

The measure passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 11-0 on Feb. 21. Shortey said he wants to have it heard by the full Senate this week or next.

The two-page bill is relatively simple.

“A person owning or controlling real estate or who voluntarily damages or destroys a drone located on the real estate or premises or within the airspace of the real estate or premises not otherwise regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration or where a reasonable expectation of privacy exists, shall not be civilly liable for causing the damage or destruction to the property, according to the measure.

Shortey said the issue has become a huge problem.
