Just ran into this - an excellent piece of legislation. From Cliff Mass:
Major Weather Bill Signed by the President Today
A major piece of legislation designed to improve U.S. weather and seasonal prediction was signed today by President Trump.
The bill, the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017, will support a wide range of improvements in U.S. weather prediction, enhance tsunami warning capabilities, and even take on the important task of dealing with weather radar gaps around the nation.
A refreshing aspect about the bill was its overwhelming bipartisan support, including passage by unanimous consent in the Senate. Sponsors of the bill were from both sides of the aisle.
Good - weather and the forecasting thereof. Not climate change or global warming. Build up a database of empirical data and compare it to the output of the models. Adjust the models to fit reality - not the other way around.
