DRONES: Will privacy be adequately protected?

The article (TNT, 4-27) about drones possibly being tested at the Moses Lake airport has brought up the issue of possible threats to citizens privacy.

I would like to know what kind of measures the Federal Aviation Administration and Washington lawmakers would take to respect the privacy of the people who live in the affected testing areas. Who protects our privacy and how could we be assured that our rights will not be violated?

According to the article, this technology will bring new sources of employment to our area, which is a great idea. However, I don’t feel comfortable knowing that I could be under unmanned air vehicle surveillance. As long as new technological jobs in our state do not invade my privacy, I can be on board supporting the coalition.
