ARDEN, (AP) — Colleagues of the late Sen. Martin Nesbitt are planning to gather in western North Carolina to bid the lawmaker farewell and honor his legacy representing mountain constituents.
Nesbitt's funeral was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at a Baptist church in Buncombe County. He died last Thursday from stomach cancer at age 67.
Members of both parties have praised the Asheville Democrat for a more than 30-year legislative career in which he was Senate majority leader and a top budget writer in the House. He relinquished the post of Senate minority leader three days before he died.
Nesbitt was the primary voice in the Senate opposing the legislature's Republican-dominated agenda.
Current minority leader and former House Speaker Dan Blue was expected to speak at the funeral. The burial is private.

States Take Differing Views Of Drones As Privacy Concerns Mount PDF Print E-mail

BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) — Law enforcement, government agencies and others are itching to use drones for everything from finding lost hikers to tracking shifting wildfires. But privacy watchdogs are urging state legislatures to step in and head off any potential privacy violations.

That tension is on display as more than 35 states consider drone legislation this year, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The bills include ways to attract an industry that could generate billions and restrictions on drone use and data collection.
The proposed legislation comes as states are awaiting clear federal guidance on drones. Many states have taken additional steps to lure the unmanned aircraft industry, such as trying to become a federal testing site, with hopes it will be a financial boon.
