WASHINGTON -- The bill would give government agencies the authority to protect drone threats. 

A bill proposed by Senator Claire McCaskill has passed both chambers of Congress.

It's called the "Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018". It gives government agencies authority to protect against drone threats.

According to a press release from Homeland Security, Senator McCaskill says in part.:
 
"We've seen rapid advances in drone technology, but government policy in this area simply hasn't kept pace... I'm going to keep working across the aisle to protect Missouri families and communities from national security threats."

It now heads to President Donald Trump's desk for a signature.
