The task force consists of lawmakers, state officials, civil liberties advocates, business people and private citizens.
Gov. Jay Inslee called for the task force in April when he vetoed a bill regarding government use of drones in Washington. At the time, he imposed a 15-month moratorium on using drones by state agencies reporting to his office, and he asked local law enforcement to do the same.
The state needs a law that “protects the privacy of Washingtonians while also creating clear and fair standards for the use of new technology to protect the safety and well-being of our citizens,” he said in the letter.
The group will follow up with meetings on Aug. 11, Oct. 13 and Nov. 10, according to his office.
