The FAA has released the membership list of the Drone Registration Task Force, which is charged with drafting recommendations for a federal drone registry. Notably, the Task Force does not include any privacy organization or privacy experts. EPIC filed an expedited FOIA request for the Task Force membership list and called on the FAA to publicly release the information. Earlier this year, EPIC sued the FAA for failing to establish privacy rules for commercial drones as mandated by Congress. The public may submit comments on the Drone Registration plan however the Task Force meeting location and agenda remains secret.
