Under current law, all male U.S. citizens between 18 and 25 years of age are required to register with the Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday, according to the Selective Service System website.
Lawmakers created the commission in 2016 after the House refused to approve a Senate proposal to expand the draft to women, USA Today reported. The 11-member bipartisan commission researched the selective service by soliciting comments online and by traveling the country and holding a series of public meetings, according to its website.
The commission’s conclusions are only advisory; whether to implement them would be up to the president and Congress.
"Personally, I don't think we will remain with the status quo," commission Chairman Joe Heck told USA Today regarding women and the draft. "But where we end up on the spectrum is yet to be determined."
The commission will continue to seek public comment through March 2020. More information can be found at the commission's website, https://www.inspire2serve.gov/.
