ALBANY, GA (WALB) - State leaders are working to regulate the use of drones.
Moultrie Republican Sam Watson is one of five state representatives appointed to a committee to study the issue and recommend potential legislation.
Watson, a farmer, said drones can be beneficial to agriculture, but he said it's important that they don't intrude of people's privacy.
"Whether it be law enforcement, agriculture, business, private business we can all benefit from this technology and not violate other people's privacy or security," said Republican Sam Wason.
The Georgia Building Authority just instituted a ban on drones within 5-miles of the state capitol.
Drone supporters say that goes too far.
