Drone Policy Checklist
The advent and the potential widespread use of drones has raised many complex questions in Washington State, resulting in different legislative proposals to regulate the use of drones—unmanned aerial vehicles—by state agencies and programs. However, we have no statewide drone legislation to date (Spring of 2018).
This checklist is designed to guide policy makers and stakeholders as they develop policy proposals. It does not instruct an agency or other entity as to “how to deploy” a drone. Rather, it is intended to surface all of the relevant policy questions to be raised before a deployment decision is made.
