Va. House blocks localities from regulating drones


The Virginia House of Delegates on Tuesday unanimously passed a bill to prohibit local governments from regulating unmanned aircraft, as Charlottesville tried to do in 2013 when it declared the city a “No Drone Zone.”

Del. Terry Kilgore, R-Gate City, said the goal of his legislation is to have uniform rules about drones across the commonwealth – and not different regulations in each locality. He said the House Courts of Justice Committee will explore the issue.

Lakhani is the mother of Glen Allen High School freshman Shahzaib Lakhani, 14, who has Down syndrome. She lashed out at budgetary shortfalls and what she perceived as a lack of interest in special-needs students. She told the board that for the second time since 2011, her son had been given a disinfectant product and told to clean the classroom, instead of studying music with his classmates. She asked the board to allocate funding to hire more custodial staff. > Read more.
