AMA Drone Report 10.17.19: Senator v FAA, Droners Released By Iran, Mavic Mini?

The Senator is introducing a bill that would allow states, cities, and even Native American tribes, to take control over a significant part of US airspace while instituting new rules for drones. Most worrisome is the possibility that this would result in hundreds, if not thousands, of new rules, enacted by legal bodies that may have little or no aviation expertise and create a whole new level of chaos.
