From KAZU News: Drones are increasingly being used by city governments for things like land surveying and storm damage assessments. Locally, Salinas plans to be an early adopter of the technology. But first the city wants to get the community on board.

 A local lawmaker is hoping her legislation will determine how drones can operate in California.

Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson introduced a bill this week that would set comprehensive limits on where drones can fly.

A bill to clarify where drones can fly in California is moving forward in Sacramento. It passed 9-to-1 out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Monday, July 13th, with a bi-partisan vote.

If signed into law, SB 142 would prohibit unmanned vehicles, or drones, from flying over a person's property without their consent. It would clarify existing trespass law to include drones, creating a 'no fly zone' of 350 feet.
