National Coastal Resilience Data and Services Act

This bill directs the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to develop within NOAA a comprehensive suite of products and services with respect to coastal flood, sea level rise, Great Lakes water level, and vertical land motion data.

NOAA shall make data and metadata generated in the process of carrying out the requirements of this bill fully and openly available in accordance with the Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 to maximize distribution, access, and effective utilization of these national assets.

The Office of Science and Technology Policy shall

facilitate interagency cooperation and alignment of federal government activities conducted with respect to coastal flooding, including sea level rise, to improve the ability of the United States to prepare for, avoid, mitigate, respond to, and recover from potentially devastating impacts; and coordinate the activities of an interagency coastal flooding and sea level rise subcommittee established by this bill. The subcommittee shall be the primary venue for the presentation and discussion of the latest science and technologies and for coordination of executive branch actions and activities that improve measurements, predictions, and service delivery of information related to coastal flood risk, including sea level rise.
