Below find a ROUGH transcript of Ask a Pol’s exclusive interview with Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD), slightly edited for clarity.

TRANSCRIPT: Sen. Mike Rounds

Mike Rounds: “Hey, good morning!”

Matt Laslo: “Hey, are you working with Schumer and his team on amending your guys’ UAP amendment from NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act] last year?”

MR: “We’re still — not a lot of activity on right now.”

ML: “Yeah?”

MR: “Doesn’t mean there’s no activity, but it’s nothing that we’re specifically going in and sitting down and changing language yet.”

ML: “Would you like to see changes though?”

MR: “Umm, the reality is that we’ll have to work with the House to find out what their concerns are and we’ll have to address them.”

ML: “Do you fully know those concerns or where they are coming from? Was it Armed Services Committee or was it from House Intel [Committee]?”

MR: “Well, that’s a really good question.”

ML: “Yeah?”

Laslo laughs.

MR: “I think there are some individuals that had some concerns — and actually some of their concerns with regard to privacy and confidentiality are valid — but we’ll do our best to work with them and get something done.”

ML: “It hasn’t quite percolated up yet?”

MR: “No, it has not.”

ML: “Appreciate ya.”

MR: “You’re not behind on anything yet.”

Laslo laughs.

ML: “Have a good one.”
