Potential Drone Test Site Spurs Concerns In San Diego Back Country

The legislate and the Hearing Committees and opposition to it, has been repeatedly ‘postponed,’ and ‘Held under submission’ since 5/24/13.

The function of the legislative branch, namely Congress, is to pass laws; the job of the executive branch and its many agencies and administrations is to enforce those laws; and the function of the courts is to interpret and apply those mandates.

Administrative agencies often act as rule makers, rule enforcers, and, to a great degree, arbiters of conflicts that come from different entities and public opinion, if we're given our rightful opportunity to do so.

The law requires that when the 'Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM)' is issued, the administrative agency must allow for public comment upon that rule. Unfortunately, in the County of San Diego this has not been then rule.
