Alan Yamamoto provided this background info.
Senator Merkley filed an amendment and attempted to offer it to the National Defense Authorization Act but he could not. Senator Hirono cosponsored the amendment.
He then introduced the amendment as a bill, S.4220. It currently has 41 cosponsors and Senator Hirono was an original cosponsor. The stand alone bill is available here, but the bill text is not yet available. It should be available ahead of the Zoom meeting on August 4.
