Representatives Ralph Hall (R-TX) and Dan Boren (D-OK) have introduced a bill (HR 6489) to improve federal efforts to prepare and respond to drought. The bill would reauthorize the National Integrated Drought Information System, which acts as a clearinghouse for drought-related data. The legislation would also further development of regional drought early warning systems, and identifies unmet needs for drought research, monitoring, and forecasting.
