Congress is considering a permanent UFO office devoted to investigating terrestrial threats.
In House Bill HR. 4350 under section 1652, the bill states that “not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense, in coordination with the Director of National Intelligence, shall establish an office within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to carry out, on a Department-wide basis, the mission currently performed by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force as of the date of the enactment of this Act.”
The act “Establishment of [an] Office to Address Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,” alludes that the term UFO or unidentified flying object will be replaced with the term “unidentified aerial phenomena,” or UAP, which” means airborne objects witnessed by a pilot or aircrew member that are not immediately identifiable.”
According to The Washington Times, the bill, however, was delayed on Wednesday due to other pressing budgetary concerns.
