    The just-released text of FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), H.R. 4350, already approved by the U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, contains a 571-word section to impose new obligations on the Department of Defense regarding Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). These include creation of a new office within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to oversee UAP-related investigations on a department-wide basis, and annual reports to key congressional committees that would include updates on, among other things, "coordination by the United States with allies and partners on efforts to track, understand, and address unidentified aerial phenomena...[and on] any efforts underway on the ability to capture or exploit discovered unidentified aerial phenomena... [and] assessment of any health-related effects for individuals that have encountered unidentified aerial phenomena."

    My longer write-up (including images of the entire UAP-related section of the bill) is here.

    On September 23, 2021, the full U.S. House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4350), including the UAP-related Section 1652, as described above. I believe this was the first time ever that a full house of Congress has approved actual legislation referring to "unidentified aerial phenomena" (or any equivalent term). This is still a long way from becoming law; many steps in the legislative process remain. I have started a new thread regarding these developments, here.
