EPIC FOIA: Transportation Department Releases New Drone Meeting Documents

In response to an EPIC Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the Department of Transportation has released to EPIC another set of documents from the agency's secret meetings with industry groups about drone policy. The newly released documents, which summarize an extensive three-day meeting between the FAA and industry groups, is conspicuously silent on privacy, despite public comments urging the agency to address privacy concerns.  In a related development, the FAA final rule on commercial drones failed to address the privacy risks of deploying drones in the United States.
