Western Governors expressed their support for the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) Reauthorization Act of 2018 in outreach sent on May 14, 2018 to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority leader Charles Schumer. “The NIDIS program represents a vital tool in western water management by promoting a coordinated and integrated approach to coping with future drought,” noted the letter, which also referenced the Governors’ role in the creation of NIDIS and work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other partners to champion the system’s implementation.
