H.R. 8949, otherwise known as the Counter-UAS Authority Extension and Transparency Enhancement Act of 2022, was introduced by Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) in September 2022.

The bipartisan legislation contains fewer measures than those recommended by the Biden Administration’s Domestic Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems National Action Plan.

Notably missing from the legislation is the recommended expansion of certain Counter-UAS authorities and technologies to state and local law enforcement, as well as critical infrastructure.

There are no noted distribution statements or limitations of this publicly available government information.
