Steve,

The following excerpts are very troublesome: ( ******** are mine, 
indicating my concerns )

************      (2) MODE OF ISSUANCE- Data, information, guidance, 
forecasts, and warnings shall be issued under paragraph (1) through a 
  set of data portals designed for volume access by commercial providers 
of products or services and by such other mechanisms as the Secretary of 
Commerce considers appropriate for purposes of that paragraph.

  **********      (d) PROHIBITION ON CERTAIN DISCLOSURES- An officer, 
employee, or agent of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration, the National Weather Service, or any other department or 
agency of the United States who by reason of that status comes into 
possession of any weather data, information, guidance, forecast, or 
warning that might influence or affect the market value of any product, 
service, commodity, tradable, or business may not--

**********         (1) willfully impart, whether directly or indirectly, 
such weather data, information, guidance, forecast, or warning, or any 
part thereof, before the issuance of such weather data, information,

with that subsection.

73,
