Proposed US Bill aims to force full disclosure within 270 days

It's time to ascend.

If a new congressional bill is passed, the U.S. government will have 270 days to release all UFO-related documents to the public.

Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., a prominent advocate for UFO transparency, plans to introduce a bill on Thursday that would mandate President Biden to instruct the heads of each federal department or agency to declassify all documents related to UAPs (unidentified anomalous phenomena), commonly known as UFOs.

“It’s simple. They spend all this time telling us they don’t exist, then release the files, dagnabbit,” Burchett told Fox News Digital in an interview before unveiling “The UAP Transparency Act.”

“I don’t want some crazy, fancy name for it,” he added. “I just want them to do exactly what the bill is about.”

Rep. Burchett has been at the forefront of the push for UFO transparency, supported by several other Republicans in the House and Senate, with bipartisan backing as well.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., and Jared Moskowitz, D-Fla., are co-sponsors of the bill.

In a previous interview, Burchett expressed his belief in a cover-up, pointing out that tens of millions of dollars are being spent “on something that you say doesn’t exist, (and) yet you continue spending the money on it. It makes you wonder.”

The 1.5-page bill would not only require the president to direct federal agencies to declassify UFO-related files but also mandate the president to file quarterly reports updating the House and Senate subcommittees on the progress of releasing the information.

“That’s all it is,” Burchett said. “It’s about transparency.”

Burchett and other lawmakers have been frustrated by bureaucratic diversion tactics and stonewalling while millions of dollars seemingly vanish into a black hole.

“Like I said before, it’s not about little green men or flying saucers,” he told Fox News Digital in an April interview. “It’s about tens of millions of dollars that our federal government is spending on something that at least some of the members of the federal government say does not exist. Yet, they will not release all the files.”

Supporting the lawmakers’ concerns, a Pentagon report from February 2021 noted that an Intelligence Community Control Access program “was expanded to protect UAP reverse-engineering … without sufficient justification.”

“This program never recovered or reverse-engineered any UAP or extraterrestrial spacecraft. This IC (intelligence community) program was disestablished due to its lack of merit,” according to the report.
