The Senate Commerce Committee will hear testimony on the commercial use of drones today.

One topic of discussion will be how the FAA should regulate such use to protect privacy. But some small-scale drone users say they’re already facing crippling obstacles.

Matt Waite heads the University of Nebraska’s Drone Journalism program. He speaks with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about using drones for reporting. FAA restrictions required him to stop in July 2013.

Guest

  • Matt Waite,  professor of practice at the University of Nebraska’s college of journalism and mass communications.
