The legislation, “The Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act of 2013” is written to ensure the protection of every American citizen’s right to personal privacy.

“The use of drone surveillance may work on the battlefields overseas, but it isn’t well-suited for unrestrained use on the streets in the United States. Congress must be vigilant in providing oversight to the use of this technology and protection for rights of the American people. I will continue the fight to protect and uphold our Fourth Amendment,” Sen. Paul said.

The bill will prohibit the use of drones owned or funded by the federal government in an evidence-collection or surveillance capacity unless a warrant authorizing the action has been obtained and specifies that no evidence obtained or collected in violation of this Act can be used/admissible as evidence in a criminal, civil, or regulatory action.

Certain exceptions are included in the legislation–patrol of national borders, when there is imminent danger to life and    high risk of a terrorist attack.
