The concesus in the weather community is that it has no chance to make it
to the floor. It was a stunt by senator Santorum who has two of the three
major weather vendors in his district.

The weather vendors *DO* want this to pass...they hate competing with the
NWS. They claim people arn't reading the bill correctly. One of those
don't watch my hand...tricks.

Because it won't come up for a vote doesn't mean you shouldn't contact
your rep and tell them you think Santorum is an idiot.
