Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 5324, NWR Modernization Act of 2021   [open pdf - 173KB]

From the Document: "Under current law, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) operates a nationwide network of radio stations that broadcast continuous weather information, called NOAA Weather Radio (NWR). Those radio stations also broadcast warning and post-event information for all types of hazards including earthquakes, avalanches, chemical releases, oil spills, AMBER alerts, and 911 outages. H.R. 5324 would authorize the appropriation of $20 million to expand NWR coverage to underserved areas through the acquisition and installation of additional transmission infrastructure."
