FY 2018 ‘Report Language’ Omnibus [long version] • Senate "The Committee directs NOAA and the IOOS regions to work with Federal agencies collecting regional observations to with the goal of reducing duplication of effort and to provide users with streamlined access to observational information. In addition, within funding provided above the request for IOOS, NOS shall work to complete and operate the National High Frequency Radar System. Within funds provided for IOOS grants, cooperative agreements, or contracts, the Committee directs each regional entity to assess current spending practices for resources that become damaged or unworkable as a result of hurricanes or other significant storms, including continually replacing damaged assets instead of repairing them or seeking to use hardened designs, and provide a costbenefit analysis to the Committee on such practices within 120 days of enactment of this act. “ • House "Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). —The recommendation includes $31, 000 for IOOS regional observations. The Committee supports ongoing efforts to examine ways to increase use of autonomous gliders, and encourages IOOS to procure additional autonomous gliders. " 26
