IAEM-USA signs onto letter from stakeholders to support increased investment in NOAA in FY2020

from IAEM

IAEM-USA with a group of 93 stakeholders on Nov. 13 sent a letter to Wilbur L. Ross, Jr., secretary, Department of Commerce; Mick Mulvaney, director, Office of Management and Budget; and Michael J. Kratsios, deputy U.S. chief technology officer, urging increased investment in the National Oceania and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Fiscal Year 2020. The letter stated that the science, technology and stewardship provided by NOAA are essential for U.S. health, security and economic prosperity. For example, NOAA provides weather and drought forecasts that farmers use to plan crops, sea state conditions to bring super tankers safely into port, water quality information to detect harmful algae blooms that threaten public health and much more. The federal NOAA investment is part of a broader government effort to provide essential, high-quality data and observations, along with a better understanding of the underlying science which are necessary to many planning, strategy, and investment decisions in both the private and public sectors, including national security. The letter makes the case that increased investment in NOAA will provide a significant return to the U.S. economy. Read the stakeholder letter online. more
