The President's Proposed Budget Would Fire Hundreds Of Meteorologists And Slash Tornado Research

The president’s proposed budget for 2020 makes more than $75,000,000 in cuts to the National Weather Service that, if passed, could adversely affect the agency’s ability to keep the public safe during severe weather. The NWS is a force of nature that works tirelessly behind the scenes to warn every square inch of land in the United States when hazardous weather is on the way. Most Americans hardly realize how much they utilize the agency’s products and services until they’re under threat.

Here we go again.

This NOAA Budget Summary details the changes from FY2018 to FY2019, if there were reductions I'm not seeing them. Presidents' budgets rarely become reality, especially when congress is controlled by the opposing party  :wink:

Yes, you are right.  I had forgotten that we have been down this road before and this year will be no exception.
