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.
