"The Senate passed the FAA Reauthorization Act on Wednesday, months after an earlier House vote in April. The bill renews funding for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) until 2023, and includes several provisions designed to modernize U.S aviation rule — from making commercial flights more comfortable for passengers to including new provisions to act against privately owned drones. "

" Gives authorities the power to track, intercept and destroy drones they consider a security threat, without needing a judge’s approval. "

Despite objection, Congress passes bill that lets U.S. authorities shoot down private drones
 
is that why the Military helicopters get to fly below 400'? they're already on search and destroy missions? (i must be on some route,.. lots of air ambulances too, just saw one of those heavy lift dual opposing rotor craft fly over, Very quiet compared to others)
