Drone Technology

America has historically led the way in technological innovation. Our first-mover status in transportation over two centuries is unquestioned. The world looks to the United States as an example of what the future will be like. For this to continue, we must invest in drone technology. Solar-powered drones have the potential to change our entire transportation system. They are safer, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly than anything in our current infrastructure. The shift to drones will create jobs and opportunities across all demographics. It is in the national interest for the United States to lead the international community in drone transportation, development and deployment.

The future of municipal transportation is in drone and drone-derivative technologies which are already commercially exploited in other parts of the world. The future of the postal service is murky at best. Its original mandate of democratizing the delivery of mail and small parcels is at stake. Drone technology breathes new life into that mandate by allowing the postal service to manage the necessary shared infrastructure of self-piloted drones.

Jobs will be created across all demographics: mechanics (drone repair), engineers (planning low altitude transportation zones, or LATZ), customer service, accountants, bookkeepers, road technicians, shop managers, integration specialists (integrating paper post services with LATZ post services), professors, laboratory workers, doctoral fellows and perhaps even doctors and nurses.

Once in place on a small scale, the system will be expanded to transport people and larger cargo. In its fullest vision, drones have the capacity to replace trains, cars, airplanes and even ships. Like horses and shortwave radio, those vestiges of past modes of transportation will be primarily left to recreation. A full implementation of this vision will also have vast positive implications for the environment.

  • Propose legislation to fund an analysis of low altitude transportation zones.
    • Propose that White Plains airport along with Westchester and Rockland counties received funding for basing such testing and analytical operations in NY 17.
  • Propose legislation allowing for the postal service to play a role
    • Serving as monitoring and recharging stations within the testing zone
  • Down the road, rather than create a new agency, the Post office should be renamed and re-appropriated for the crucial function of managing low altitude transportation zones (LATZ)

SALT Exemption

Reform is needed to address issues that have arisen from the elimination of the SALT deduction which disproportionately hurts the middle class and retirees in our district. At the same time, we should recognize that New York needs deep reform to fix its excessive property tax burden. Josh supports low
