SACRAMENTO — A state lawmaker has revived legislation to curb public agencies’ use of drones just two months after Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill with nearly identical aspirations.

Drone-collected images would have to be destroyed within a year, and agencies would have to notify the public about their plans for using such aircraft.
