The FAA is mulling a change in proposed regulations for drones, and big tech will have its say.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced Wednesday a committee to draft recommendations for rules that could ease restrictions on operating drones in crowded or public places. The FAA has invited mostly commercial stakeholders, including Alphabet‘s Google X, Intel and GoPro, to the group.

The committee will start working on recommendations next month and give a final report to the FAA by April 1, when the agency will review its findings and file a proposal. It comes as business interests have ramped up pressure on the FAA and Congress for wider drone use amid concerns about public safety and privacy.

Dear friends,

As you know, there has been great destruction in Nepal due to the massive earthquake that hit the Kathmandu Valley towards the end of April. It is clear that help is needed now and will be needed well into the future so this beautiful country and its people can recover.

Adorama in collaboration with The Photo Brigade and AdoramaPix has launched a campaign entitled “Prints for Nepal” to support the non-profit organization GlobalGiving in raising funds for the relief effort in Nepal.

Adorama thanks Canon, Nikon and Intel for helping us raise $22,000 so far through their direct corporate donations. We now need your help to raise awareness and drive our charitable cause.

There are 5 prints included in this fundraiser, available in a variety of sizes. These images, created by The Photo Brigade founder Robert Caplin and Adorama representative Joshua Wright prior to the disaster, showcase the heart and soul of Nepali culture and landscape:

AdoramaPix will graciously provide their superior printing service to make these photographs available for purchase. Each image is printed on premium Luster paper and comes with a hand-signed thank you card from Adorama. Shipping is free.

Prints for Nepal will be donating 100% of proceeds from the sales of these select images to GlobalGiving, and the fundraising effort will run through June 30, 2015.
