Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAVs)

State lawmakers in New Jersey advanced a package of bills on December 14 to restrict the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones, in reaction to incidents receiving national attention, including around Newark International Airport. This first round of legislation focuses on restricting drone flights over critical infrastructure, notifying customers of Federal Aviation Administration regulations, and implementing "geo-fencing" technology that prevents UAS from flying over certain areas and criminalizes violations.
