New Legislation Could Open Floodgates of Government UFO Reports

Congress Ufo Reports Floodgates

The US government just made it easier to report UFOs, possibly releasing people from non-disclosure agreements. Will this open the floodgates of information?

As part of the annual defense spending bill, within the National Defense Authorization Act for 2023, the House just approved an amendment that would make it easier for current or former members of the military, government-employed civilians, and contractors to report UFOs or UAPs as the government now calls them.

The measure was sponsored by Reps. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin and Ruben Gallego of Arizona, who have been among those in Congress calling for more transparency into UFOs.

The amendment would create a secure system for reporting any UFO phenomena and protect those who come forward from any repercussions.

Gallagher told Politico, “I believe it’s possible that folks may be precluded from being fully transparent with congress due to their being bound by non-disclosure agreements… if that’s true, I want to make sure that there’s no technical reason preventing them from speaking to us.”

The amendment would establish a dedicated system to report, “Any event relating to unidentified aerial phenomena; and any Government or Government contractor activity or program related to unidentified aerial phenomena.”

So, not only does it require a report on UAP encounters, but a report on what was done about it. Furthermore, the amendment requires a review by the Inspectors General no less than one year after enactment to confirm the appropriate actions have been taken and confirm compliance with the new system.

Luis Elizondo, whistleblower and former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, reportedly told Politico the amendment was, “one of the greatest efforts in recent history to foster transparency on this topic,” and added, “This legislation may open the floodgates.”

All of this comes about two months after the first public hearing on UFOs in more than 50 years. And as we have recently reported, some on Capitol Hill have not been impressed by the lackluster response from national security agencies. 

Meanwhile, the Senate is reportedly working on their own, similar, version of this bill that would also offer amnesty to anyone coming forward with information on UFOs. These measures could be the next step towards requiring compliance regarding disclosure.

The Senate Is Unhappy With the Intelligence UFO Report, Demands More

Congress is doubling down on UFO legislation — first the House and now the Senate is demanding answers going back decades.

Members of Congress who are not pleased with the lackluster response from security agencies and the Department of Defense’s response to last year’s UFO-related legislation called for sweeping changes and oversight to the reporting of UFO activity. They just passed even stronger language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2023.

Mirroring the House legislation, the Senate would also create a “secure system” for reporting UAPs, as well as loosen the restrictions on, or release people from, non-disclosure agreements. It also calls for a deep dive into how UAP-related activities were handled by the government dating back to 1947. 

So what makes this bill so groundbreaking? Nick Pope served with the UK’s Ministry of Defense covering UAP activity.

“We now have some really strong language in the draft Intelligence Authorization Act for fiscal year 2023. The bottom line is that Congress is continuing to say to the DoD and intelligence community, ‘we want action on the UAP issue,’ and they are clearly not letting it go, and the language is robust. They are articulating a number of must-haves here that we have not seen before.”
