The Oregon House approved a measure that hopes to light a fire under the federal government's permit process in the testing of drones in Central Oregon. Jason Conger of Bend introduced it, saying that the testing of unmanned aircraft here could pump millions of dollars into the local economy: “Some projections I’ve seen, obtained by EDCO, by the way, said that it cold amount to $75 million positive financial impact to Central Oregon.” Conger says drone testing would attract aerospace, aviation and manufacturing to the area, and would create 1000's of well paying jobs in the process. “The measure, House Joint Memorial 20; urges Congress to enact legislation requiring the FAA to expedite the approval process for drones in rural counties with an unemployment rate of 10% or higher.” Though private pilots and hang-gliders have questioned the idea, the memorial passed unanimously yesterday without debate. It now moves to the Senate.
