Congressman Smith statement on drone sightings in Nebraska

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement after recent sightings of unclaimed drones in Western Nebraska and Eastern Colorado:

“I have reached out to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) about finding the source of these unidentified drones and am concerned there seems to be no clear assessment of their source. We must protect the privacy and property rights of Nebraskans. I appreciate the work of federal, state, and local officials to address these concerns and encourage Nebraskans to promptly contact local law enforcement with detailed accounts of confirmed future sightings.”
