  1. Something I dimly remember from somewhere

    I seem to remember that there were a number of Congress critters that
    were trying to privatize weather forecasting, thus eliminating the NWS.
    You probably know more about this than I do. Believe it or not, these
    congress critters had taken campaign contributions from private weather
    forecasting companies. Yeah, I know. Hard to believe.

      That was Rick Santorum, Senator from Pennsylvania in 2005. He introduced a bill that would of prevented the NWS from competing with the likes of Accuweather and the Weather Channel. The bill was poorly written and vague. Didn’t even make it out of committee. Santorum didn’t win reelection in 2006. Not many tears shed in the NWS.
