The agency was responding to a proposed law in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colo., that would grant hunting permits to shoot drones. The permits would cost $25 each.
The proposal would also encourage drone hunting by awarding $100 to anyone who presents a valid hunting license and identifiable pieces of drone that has been shot down. It's expected to come up for a vote next month.
The FAA said it is responsible for regulating the nation's airspace, including over cities and towns.
