Sen. Paul Introduces Amendment to Restrict Government Domestic Drone Surveillance

Mar 22, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C - On Thursday, March 21, Sen. Rand Paul introduced an amendment, to S.Con.Res.8, the Budget Resolution, which would create a deficit-neutral fund to restrict the government's ability to use drones to conduct surveillance within the United States. The amendment would specifically require all law enforcement agencies to obtain a warrant before using a drone in a law enforcement or evidence collection capacity, excluding the surveillance needed for border security.

"The use of drone surveillance may work on the battlefields over-seas, but it isn't necessarily well-suited for unrestrained use on the streets in the United States. Congress should be vigilant in providing oversight to the use of this technology and protection for rights of the American people. I will continue the fight to protect and uphold our Fourth Amendment." Sen. Rand Paul said.
