Government Executive
The federal government has raised more than enough money to build a nationwide communications network for first responders. The network will help police, firefighters, and other public-safety officials from different agencies communicate with each other during emergencies. It is intended to handle high-speed data, so officials should be able to send photos and videos to each other, helping them coordinate their responses.

Claims Journal
The U.S. government’s ability to regulate drones was upheld by a federal safety board, which overturned a judge’s decision that aviation regulations don’t apply to small unmanned aircraft. The National Transportation Safety Board, which decides appeals of aviation enforcement actions, found that laws restricting unsafe flight activity cover drones as well as traditional aircraft.
