The Federal Aviation Association is seeking proposals from cities, states and universities to create six test sites for unmanned aircraft systems, or more commonly known as drones.

Those proposals will help officials develop safety standards allowing the government to fully integrate drones into the national airspace by 2015.

The FAA is asking for public input on its proposed privacy requirements, and a bi-partisan bill that would require law enforcement to get search warrants being using drones to investigate crimes will be introduced this week.
