This area reserved for state and federal government activity pertinent to model aviation.
There has been great progress over the past few years stopping and amending legislation that has been over reaching, poorly written with need of input from all stakeholders. Fortunately the advocacy exhibited by AMA Government Affairs and members has proven successful as the world adapts to advances in technology that share the National Airspace System. Stories continue to surface in the news of people behaving badly with drones and this unfortunately is the world we live in. Educating operators and law makers while advocating for the hobby are our best methods to defend our wonderful hobby.
NH HB 97- Has been amended due to the work of local members attending the public hearing in January and communicating with representatives. Language has been amended to better serve the needs of all stakeholders. This bill will shortly enter the Senate process. AMA Government Affairs and our "watchdogs" are keeping an eye on the legislation to make sure it doesn't harm responsible operations of sUAS. We will communicate if we need to launch an advocacy campaign specific to this bill.
District 1 VP Andy Argenio has been working tirelessly keeping informed and addressing our newest threat- Municipalities attempting to overstep federal law. The predominant cause for most of the legislation is privacy. The language being used however, is often contrary to the needs of Aeromodeling.
Please use the following hyperlinks to stay informed and advocate for your hobby. Thank you.
