URISA Encourages Support of Geospatial Data Act of 2015
Earlier this month, URISA prepared and sent a letter to Senator Hatch, Senator Warner, and Members of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation
Committee in order to voice its support of the Geospatial Data Act of 2015 (S.740), noting: 

"In its current form, S.740 offers a vital step to fix the federal data problems by making our government agencies collect and use geographic data more efficiently. S.740 will reduce data duplication, save taxpayer money, and enable greater consistency of policy and actions among government agencies."

Read the complete text of the letter and take note of the list of Senators who serve on the Committee. If your State's Senator is on the committee, let your Senator know how S.740 might affect your state. URISA's Policy Advisory Committee prepared some text for your use in expressing your support. Click on the second bullet on this page.
