The Federal Aviation Administration is considering establishing six test facilities for unmanned aerial systems in the United States.
The Transportation Committee of the Idaho Senate has drafted and introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 103 in this term of the Idaho Legislature. If adopted, the Resolution would “encourage the Idaho Department of Commerce in collaboration with the University of Idaho, Boise State University, Idaho State University, the College of Western Idaho and other stakeholders to coordinate comments and identify a lead entity to prepare a proposal on behalf of the state, for Idaho to be selected as one of the Federal Aviation Administration’s six unmanned aircraft system test sites.” The Committee estimates the one-time cost to complete this proposal would be $25,000.
What do you think? Money well spent? Money wasted? Good idea? Bad idea? Why?
