Hawaii lawmakers are considering a bill that would make it illegal for police to monitor people with unmanned aircraft without due process.
Police, hobbyists, filmmakers and regulators told lawmakers Tuesday that the state should protect people's privacy.
They also urge lawmakers to protect many uses for unmanned aircraft beyond police surveillance.
They say commercial photography, search and rescue operations, resource management and recreational use should all be allowed.
Large drones like the ones the U.S. military and border patrol uses aren't the only style of unmanned craft that would be regulated.
