It's amazing just how different two parties can make the exact same legislation look. Remember back in April when Accuweather convinced its Senator to propose a bill that would stop the National Weather Service from feeding its data to the public? Right, well, apparently Accuweather is now sending out emails to many of its subscribers telling them to speak up in support of the bill. Of course, they (so convenient of them) skip the part where the bill bans the NWS from giving out the info to the public for free and instead focuses on the part that would force the NWS to provide real-time, rather than delayed, info -- but only to certain commercial providers, such as (you guessed it!), Accuweather. Funny how that works...
