The Washington governor's office unveiled draft rules for government use of drones Monday. This would replace drone legislation that Democrat Jay Inslee vetoed earlier this year. 

The state's chief information officer presented the draft bill to a task force convened by Washington's governor. Michael Cockrill said the Inslee Administration's preferred approach is "to be permissive, not restrictive."
