ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 529: National Landslide Preparedness Act   [open pdf - 94KB]

From the Document: "S. 529 would direct the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to implement two programs focused on mapping the territory of the United States. Under the bill, the National Landslide Hazards Reduction Program (NLHRP) would develop a national strategy to reduce landslide risks, create and maintain a publicly accessible database on landslide hazards, expand the current early warning system for flash floods and debris flow following wildfires, and lead an interagency coordinating committee on landslide hazards. The bill also would authorize two grant programs under the NLHRP."
