Re: US Senators Introduce Legislation to Track, Identify High-Altitude Balloons

Hank Riley

Official U.S. Senate press release for the Kelly-Budd Seeing Objects at Altitude Regularly (SOAR) Act

Sen. Kelly said:

“At a time when our adversaries are using hostile surveillance tactics, there is no reason why our country should have to wonder whether an object in our airspace is a threat, weather balloon, or science project. Our common-sense legislation will give our military the tools needed to identify threats more quickly and efficiently, while providing more certainty to good faith operators of high-altitude balloons. I welcome Senator Budd’s partnership on this safety and national security issue.”

The text of the proposed Soar Act is attached as a small PDF.
