October 28, 2020 S. 4462 Floods Act


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.
