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.
  § 2. The civil rights law is amended by adding a new  article  6-A  to
read as follows:
                                ARTICLE 6-A
                         USE OF UNMANNED AERIAL
                                VEHICLES
SECTION 66.   USE OF UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES; DEFINITION.
        66-A. LAWFUL USE OF UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES.
        66-B. DATA RETENTION.
        66-C. ADMINISTRATIVE  DISCIPLINE  FOR  MISUSE OF UNMANNED AERIAL
                VEHICLES.
