Bart Jansen talked about near-collisions between drones and commercial aircraft and what the federal government could do to regulate recreational and commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles. A video clip was shown of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx speaking July 24, 2015, and a portion of a public service message from the Federal Aviation Agency. Also discussed was the danger drones posed to firefighters and how they impede their work. A public service message from the National Interagency Fire Center was shown. Mr. Jansen responded to telephone calls and electronic communications, including a telephone line reserved for drone owners.

The program concluded with a video clip of former Governor Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), a 2012 presidential candidate, being interviewed August 13, 2015, for “Newsmakers.” close
