LETTER: Governors express support for National Integrated Drought Information System


On June 30, 2017, Western Governors sent a letter to U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen and Ranking Member Nita Lowey to express support for adequate funding of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) as appropriations priorities are considered for the 2018 Fiscal Year. NIDIS serves many valuable roles in western water management and drought response, including the precipitation forecasts needed to provide early drought warnings, which are critical in the West.
