LINCOLN – A bill that would ban cops from using drones got a warm welcome Thursday from a legislative committee in Nebraska.

Nebraska is among 11 states considering limiting the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, as they move from battlefields to backyards.

In Nebraska, Sen. Paul Schumacher, a former county attorney, introduced a bill that would prohibit law enforcement from using drones. As America’s wars in the Middle East wind down, he’s concerned “Madison Avenue firms” will be lobbying police departments to buy the drones.
