NBAA Chairman and CEO
Ed Bolen recently joined National Air Transportation Association
(NATA) President Jim Coyne in sending a letter expressing strong
opposition to pending Senate legislation that would prohibit the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the
National Weather Service (NWS) from providing weather reports,
forecasting and data collection services free of charge to the
As introduced, S. 78 (The National Weather Services Duties Act
of 2005) would prohibit NOAA and NWS from offering no-cost
weather and related services to the public if the services
are offered by a private company.
The bill was sponsored
by U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA).
The letter sent by NBAA and NATA opposing the proposal was sent
to both the chairman and the ranking minority member of the Senate
Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. No hearings have
been scheduled on the legislation, and NBAA continues to closely
monitor the issue.
