"One of the amendments — all of which were adopted on Monday evening — would establish criminal penalties for the reckless use of drones. That amendment, offered by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), would penalize drone operators who fly near airports without prior approval."

The whole idea of revising the drone rules initially was to allow drones for commercial use but that all got hijacked by the idiots. Now the FAA and Congress is wasting money trying to figure it out and we're looking money waiting on better commercial rules.
