The Senate Committee on Commerce recently reported S. 4462, and it is now pending Senate action.
The bill would authorize the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to establish a national integrated flood information system and improve the coordination and communication of flood events by the National Weather Service through site-specific designation of warning coordination hydrologists and an assessment of NOAA’s system for issuing flash flood watches and warnings.
The bill would also establish a program, referred to as the ‘‘NOAA Precipitation Frequency Atlas of the United States’’, to estimate and communicate precipitation frequency in the United States. The program would be authorized appropriations of $3.5 million for each fiscal year from 2021 through 2030.
A section analysis is attached.
