DHS Sends UAV Best Practices Notice to OMB

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received a best practices notice from DHS for review. This was not listed in the latest Unified Agenda (notices typically are not) so there is no specific information about this proposed publication.

I would suspect that this is part of a DHS effort to establish internal controls about the appropriate use of unmanned aerial vehicles. It will be interesting to see how long it takes OIRA to approve the publication of this notice.

OK, so those who choose to use a UAV in a civil manner now have appropriate guidelines.

Unfortunately, it won't stop the idiots from doing stupid things with these devices. I reserve the right to down any UAV flying over my home or hay field within range of my shotgun.
