Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017

Posted by cypresstx on 4/5/2017, 6:54 pm

I don't know enough about this bill, but it's being praised by NCAR, which is good, but also supported by Lamar Smith, which kinda keeps me skeptical...

Another section of the bill focuses on stimulating the private sector to generate weather data that the government can use to improve forecasts. "With this bipartisan effort, we will improve forecasting by looking to the private sector for new technologies and weather solutions," Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) said. "This bill gives NOAA a clear vision and allows them the flexibility to buy new, affordable, and potentially better sources of data."
