AN ACT to amend the civil rights law, in relation to the use of unmanned
  aerial vehicles

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that:
  (a) unmanned aerial vehicle technology has begun expanding out of  its
traditional military markets and into civilian markets;
  (b)  Congress has ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to inte-
grate unmanned aerial vehicles into the air traffic  control  system  by
2015;
  (c)  81  agencies across the United States have applied to the Federal
Aviation Administration for licenses to operate  unmanned  aerial  vehi-
cles;
  (d)  the  use of unmanned aerial vehicles represents both a great tool
for law enforcement and a great risk to civil liberties; and
  (e) legislation is required to ensure that the future use of  unmanned
aerial vehicles complies with the level of privacy that New Yorkers have
come to expect in their lives.
  S  2.  The  civil rights law is amended by adding a new article 6-A to
read as follows:
                                ARTICLE 6-A
