Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) introduced a bipartisan amendment to the NDAA that would destroy the state’s UFO record.
Majority Leader Schumer’s office announced in a statement:
Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Mike Rounds (R-SD), Designated Member of the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity of the Armed Services Committee, are spearheading the changes. – Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Disclosure Act of 2023 – along with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Vice Chairman of the Intelligence Committee; Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), Chair of the Subcommittee on Threats and Energy of the Armed Services Committee; Senator Todd Young (R-IN); and Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) that would increase transparency around Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) and advance scientific research.
The law that was introduced as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which will be on the floor of the Senate next week, will order the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to create documents known as the UAP Records Collection. and tell each government office to identify the records that will go into the collection. The UAP Records Collection may have a presumption of immediate disclosure, which means that the reviewing agency must provide a reason for the records to be classified.
One thing that Republicans and Democrats can agree on after the proliferation of government officials misbehaving (Pence and Biden) or deliberately keeping (Tump) secret documents is that the United States government has a serious problem.
It is time for Congress to start creating agencies to provide a reason why certain documents are classified.
Do we need documents related to UFOs and UFOs?
Transparency in government is good for democracy. The advancement of scientific research is good for society.
Laws and amendments are often introduced that have no chance of becoming law.
This can be a rule. With the support of Republicans and Democrats, it will pass the Senate bill, as long as House Republicans do not remove it from their version. It should be in the final legislation that will eventually be approved and signed by President Biden.
Senate Majority Leader Schumer said, “The American people have a right to learn about mysterious technologies, non-human intelligence, and unexplained phenomena. We are not only working to destroy what the government has already learned about these phenomena but to pave the way for future research to be made public. I am honored to continue The legacy of my mentor and dear friend, Harry Reid, is to fight for the transparency that people have long wanted to bring about these untold events.”
The American people have a right to know, and soon they will.
