NSPS wins 3DEP funding Interior spending bill

from NSPS

Prior to Congress adjourning for the 4th of July Holiday, the House began consideration of H.R. 2822, the spending bill for the Department of the Interior, which includes surveying and mapping activities within the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the US Geological Survey (USGS), among other Federal agencies. The Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee marked-up the Senate companion bill, S. 1645. One of the programs NSPS advocated during its April 15, 2015 day on Capitol Hill was the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) managed by USGS. The Senate Committee report language for 3DEP includes, "Program levels include: $3,000,000 for 3D elevation activities; $500,000 for 3D elevation: coastal lidar, and $1,322,000 to fund the Alaska mapping program." Further work on appropriations bills is expected to resume next week when Congress reconvenes. more
