From EPIC:

According to reports, President Obama is set to issue an executive order on drone privacy. The order would call for the development of voluntary best practices for the commercial use of drones. Senator Markey and Representative Welch immediately responded to the reports with a letter  to the President urging “strong, enforceable rules – not voluntary best practices….” EPIC has testified  in Congress in support of a comprehensive drone privacy law. EPIC called for drone legislation to include use limitations, data retention limitations, transparency, and public accountability. The Federal Aviation Administration agreed  to address drone privacy issues after an EPIC-led coalition petitioned  the agency two years ago. Last year, EPIC urged  the agency to mandate minimum privacy standards for drone operators. For more information, see EPIC: Domestic Drones.
