A senate committee approves a bill to ban the use of drones to photograph people on private property without permission, but a couple of lawmakers have concerns. The measure contains several exceptions, including for law enforcement. But Benton Senator Robert Adley says the bill could also hurt the media's ability to cover a news event.

 
"They (media) can't be there for bank robbery or anything else," Adley said.
 
The proposal is by Baton Rouge Senator Dan Claitor, who says the media's ability to cover a big story would not be hampered by this legislation. 
 
Claitor also added that the First Amendment doesn't trump the Fourth Amendment.
 
Despite the concerns, the bill passed without objection and heads to the Senate floor.
