This report tracks congressional appropriations action on the President's FY2006 funding request for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In addition, it discusses issues of possible congressional concern bearing on NOAA appropriations for FY2006, such as the U.S. Oceans Commission's and the President's Action Plan making recommendations for an oceans science initiative for NOAA; FY2005 emergency supplemental funding for the National Weather Service to upgrade U.S. tsunami warning systems; and the Administration's and Congress's proposals for a NOAA organic act (H.R. 50).
