    This is great news....

    SAN FRANCISCO — California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation Wednesday that would have restricted the flying of drones lower than 350 feet over private property without the owner's permission.

    While drone technology raises novel issues, Brown said in his veto message the bill "could expose the occasional hobbyist and the FAA-approved commercial user alike to burdensome litigation."

    It only made sense to kill this bill.
