The U.S. Senate on Thursday (12/1) approved H.R. 1561, commonly known as The Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2016.
Passage came by unanimous consent, with a Senate amendment.
The bill as amended, which leaders of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and the House Science Committee negotiated, adds weather forecasting and research reform provisions from three other bills.
If your radio or TV stations heavily market themselves as “The Weather Authority,” this legislation could be of keen interest to you.
If your radio stations serve the agricultural communities of the U.S., this makes for highly important and essential reading.
