Drones, Texas, and Property Owner Rights

Posted on April 1, 2013. Filed under: Politics | Tags: , , , , |

We have seen and heard a lot of advertising through the years in Texas, that the Texans for Lawsuit Reform Group is a conservative organization.  There are certain new developments that raise questions among the most trusting of individuals in Texas.

A bill is pending in the Texas House (HB 912) that would prohibit the use of drones to take pictures of individuals’ property without their consent.  HB912 is an important piece of legislation to protect the privacy rights of Texans and has over 100 co-authors. Unfortunately, the special interest group “Texans For Lawsuit Reform” is actively lobbying against this bill because it includes necessary civil penalties.

When laws are made, they serve two purposes.  The laws provide boundaries for appropriate actions in society, and civil and criminal consequences if one disobeys those laws.  For something as serious as a drone being used without consent to surveil innocent property owners, I would think the public would want as many deterrants to that activity as possible.  A child will not hesitate to tempt his boundaries if there are no penalties or consequences.   Do we simply trust everyone has good intentions and hope for the best?

TLR hired an Austin Law Firm to give testimony to the legislative committee arguing against the bill which will protect property owners.  This is yet another item to add to the list of:  Is this a Conservative action?

Below, there is a letter from the President of TLR “explaining” why they believe the property owners should not have protection under the law

TLR drone letter

Please reach out and speak with your legislator today.  Don’t let this special interest group override the rights of Texans for remedies under the law.
