Senate Passes GIS Day Resolution Following Successful Passage of Geospatial Data Act

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Senator Mark Warner (D-VA)
led a Senate resolution to designate November 15, 2018 as “National GIS Day.”
Senators Baldwin (D-WI), Blumenthal (D-CT), Capito (R-WV), Hassan (D-NH),
Inhofe (R-OK), and Wyden (D-OR) joined Hatch and Warner in submitting the
resolution.  “The Senate designates November 15, 2018, as ‘National
GIS Day’; encourages users of Geographic Information System technology …
[including] educators, students, and innovators to continue to employ GIS to
learn and explore, to analyze and address societal challenges; and to drive
economic growth for the betterment of the people of the United States and
individuals around the world.” the three-page resolution concludes.  This recognition by the Senate punctuates the passage of
the Geospatial Data Act, included as a component in H.R. 302, the FAA
Reauthorization Act signed into law last month.
