I believe we all view privacy as a serious issue that our constituents are concerned about, yet we also see the long-term benefits in the use of unmanned aircraft for carrying out missions that are otherwise dirty, dull or dangerous. Commercial use could also create high paying jobs and environmental benefits that could transform our economy. Many states have begun drafting legislation to address the privacy concerns related to UAS. We want to give thorough, thougtful consideration to all sides of the issues in order to develop suggested legislation for consideration by the states. Please be a part of this effort by reviewing the attached plan we’ve developed and submitting your comments to Bob Davis by Email to bob.davis@cwt.com, fax to 202-862-2400 or mailed by post to Cadwalader, 700 6th Street, NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20001 by June 1. Your submission should address civil, commercial and personal use of UAS and contain your views on the “assumption of privacy” in UAS use. Your submission should not exceed three pages. An independent law firm, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, and leaders of state government associations will review your submission and draft best practices and suggested legislation based on your comments, to be presented at a roundtable discussion in Washington, D.C. on August 14. You are invited to participate in the roundtable to personally discuss the results of our drafting effort. Thank you for your leadership, and for taking the time to participate in this dialogue. Sincerely, Mead Treadwell Lieutenant Governor, State of Alaska Chair, Aerospace States Association The Aerospace States Association 107 S.
