MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. — New legislation would restrict the use of drones on Mackinac Island.

The Michigan State Senate voted unanimously Monday to give final approval to legislation that would restrict the use of drones on the island.

Currently, state law bans local governments from regulating the ownership or operation of drones.

Under the new legislation, drones would be allowed on the island for certain purposes as long as they do not intentionally interfere with the horses.

The bill will now head to Gov. Whitmer's desk for the next steps.
