Aerial, warrantless surveillance is a violation of our Fourth Amendment rights and our right to privacy. The recently enacted Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization bill will, for the first time, effectively allow the use of "unmanned aerial vehicles" (UAVs, more commonly known as drones) to conduct warrantless spying on American citizens--with no real limits and no court authorization.
The Congress is beginning its annual budget cycle for Fiscal Year 2013. As a citizen and your constituent, I urge you to prohibit the allocation of federal funds for the use of drones for warrantless domestic surveillance.
