Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after the Senate passed the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act (H.R. 1561), which includes the Hurricane Forecast Improvement Act Rubio introduced in May 2015:

“Floridians saw two major hurricanes inflict significant damage on our state this year. This legislation will help save lives and avoid damage to our economy by improving the way the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tracks these dangerous storms.
