House passes two bipartisan science committee bills

(Washington, DC) – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives considered and passed two bipartisan Science, Space, and Technology Committee bills: H.R. 676, the Coastal Communities Ocean Acidification Act of 2023 and H.R. 1715, the Advanced Weather Model Computing Development Act.

“I applaud the passage of these two bipartisan pieces of Committee legislation,” said Chairman Frank Lucas. “Improved community engagement with Indian Tribes, as well as state and local government, will improve NOAA’s work to support the health and long-term growth of our marine ecosystems. Collaboration between the Department of Energy and NOAA will not only improve NOAA’s forecasting, but the opportunity to analyze large weather data sets will help to advance machine learning at DOE. […]”

H.R. 676, the Coastal Communities Ocean Acidification Act of 2023, requires the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to collaborate with State and local governments and Indian Tribes on vulnerability assessments related to ocean acidification, research planning, and similar activities.
