JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The debate on drones has reached the Alaska Legislature.

Rep. Scott Kawasaki proposed a bill Tuesday that would limit when and how unmanned aerial vehicles can be used in the state. HB159 also would make evidence acquired by a UAV without proper authorization inadmissible in court.

In his sponsor statement, Kawasaki said that the state needs to create strict guidelines on drone use in order to protect the privacy of Alaskans.

The bill was referred to four committees. That makes it unlikely that the bill will make it to the House floor for a vote by the end of the legislative session.
