Miller’s Advanced Weather Model Computing Development Act Passes House

WASHINGTON – The House of Representatives today passed a bill introduced by Congressman Max Miller, R-Rocky River, that requires the Department of Energy and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association to collaborate on weather and climate modeling.

HR 1715, the Advanced Weather Model Computing Development Act, passed the House on a 356 to 50 vote. This is the first bill that Miller has introduced to pass the House.

“Collaborating and sharing information between these agencies ensures that researchers are on the same page. This will prevent duplication of efforts while saving taxpayer resources. I appreciate my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for passing this legislation today,” Miller said.

The legislation:

  • Requires DOE and NOAA to collaborate on research on advancing weather and climate modeling and prediction

  • Research activities may include:

    • Developing new methods for modeling and simulation, machine learning, and predictive data analysis

    • Facilitating data sharing between federal agencies, institutes of higher education and other organizations

  • Additionally, NOAA must carry out an initiative to conduct proof-of-concept scenarios by comparing forecasts generated by advanced forecasting models with those generated by current models. As part of the initiative, NOAA may share innovations in the modeling system and applications through community-based activities and leverage climate and weather data and efforts of other federal agencies. NOAA must collaborate with DOE on the initiative.
