New Hampshire lawmakers are proposing putting up a privacy bubble against surveillance drones.

Leading the charge is Republican Representative Neal Kurk, who says it's obvious drones will soon become both widespread and intrusive.

The bill cleared a committee by a vote of 16-2 and could be taken up in the House as early as Wednesday. It prohibits drones from taking pictures over private property without the owner's permission.

New Hampshire is among 34 states that proposed various drone privacy bills this year.
