FAA considering new drone registration rules

Washington, D.C. The Department of Transportation is reviewing whether the FAA has the authority to require drones be registered at their point of sale, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told CBS News on Friday.

“That’s what we’re looking at, the question is what can we do on our own and where do we need Congress to intervene,” said Foxx. “The administration has an interagency group working on this, that includes the Department of Homeland Security and other departments that will be focused on this.”
