Mississippi UAS Laws

 
 
Note on Federal vs State Laws:

Federal airspace laws take precedence over state drone laws. If a state or local law directly conflicts with FAA regulations, the state or local law is likely to be invalidated.

 

Statutes/Bills:

SB 2022 - An ACT to amend Section 97-29-61, Mississippi Code of 1972

Mississippi addresses drones in its “voyeurism” statute. It is considered a felony offense to use a drone or other instrumentality to spy on another person.

Penalties range from up to five years for a person who was over the age of twenty-one at the time of the offense, to up to ten years when a person who was over the age of twenty-one at the time of the offense spied upon a child under the age of sixteen.
