Statement from the Commercial Drone Alliance regarding draft legislation allowing the government to track and take control of UAS: 

The safety, security and efficiency benefits of commercial drones are great and vast, but policymaking has lagged behind technology.  It is therefore critical that the federal government work diligently to integrate drones into our National Airspace System safely and securely.  The Commercial Drone Alliance is committed to working with the federal government to do so.  As part of this overall effort, we would support an appropriately tailored measure enabling law enforcement to mitigate drone threats. As but one example, we are interested to ensure that such a measure would protect authorized commercial drone flights. We are studying the draft legislation now and look forward to working with lawmakers to ensure that we are able to open the skies to commercial drones in a timely, safe and secure way.
