Dear [rep. name],
I am writing to express my strong opposition to HF572 and SF520, which seek to create aerial trespassing regulations that would be detrimental to the budding drone industry in our state. As a [concerned citizen | Drone Professional | Drone Enthusiast], I believe that these bills are not only unnecessary but are also preempted by Federal law 49 USC §40103, wasting taxpayer money in litigation.
Drone technology has the potential to transform many aspects of our society, from agriculture to emergency services. By creating unnecessary regulations that restrict drone usage, these bills would stifle innovation and hinder economic growth in our state. Moreover, these regulations would add unnecessary layers of bureaucracy, making it more difficult for individuals and businesses to use drones safely and effectively.
Additionally, Federal law 49 USC §40103 clearly states that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has sole jurisdiction over airspace, preempting any state or local laws regarding aviation safety. Therefore, these bills are not only unnecessary but also unconstitutional.
I urge you to oppose HF572 and SF520 and to support the growth of the drone industry in our state. The benefits of drone technology are clear, and we should not let unnecessary regulations stand in the way of progress. I also urge you to respect the supremacy of Federal law in this matter and avoid any actions that may put our state in legal jeopardy.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
