The House Approves the Development of a Secure UFO Reporting System

One Step Closer to full disclosure, a bipartisan amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act which will make it easier to share and communicate information about UFOs was approved by the House on Wednesday.

There was no floor discussion and the motion was adopted by voice vote with little to no opposition.

According to the bill language, the UFO reporting system would allow for the “rapid sharing” of information with certain scientists, analysts, and government employees.

The revision comes in response to a previous intelligence analysis from last year that claimed there was insufficient evidence to account for 143 of 144 UFO reports made by military aircraft between 2004 and 2011.

In December, legislation to establish an office to research UFOs became official after footage of an unidentified aircraft recorded by navy pilots was leaked. The navy and the US government later admitted that there were several incidents that were unidentified and under investigation.

After the footage was made public, interviews with Navy pilots revealed that these kinds of sightings were common, but that pilots were discouraged from reporting such sightings.

In June, NASA made the announcement that it would establish a separate study team to examine observations of sky phenomena that cannot be attributed to airplanes or well-known natural phenomena.

The amendment was sponsored by Reps. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) and Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.)

The Pentagon and NASA have already taken steps to destigmatize reports of UFO accounts.

The Pentagon declared in May that it would restart a program that allowed service members to report any UFOs they had observed.

At the May hearing before the House Intelligence Committee, Defense Department intelligence director Ronald Moultrie stated that the agency wants to take UFOs more seriously.

Moultrie said, “Our goal is not to potentially cover up something, if we were to find something, it’s to understand what may be out there, examine what it may mean for us.”

The full National Defense Authorization Act for this year still needs to pass the house before moving on to the Senate which is expected to be voted on and passed this week.
