MAPPS to Testify at Congressional Field Hearing in Colorado

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Tuesday, April 24, 2012
The U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources, will hold an oversight and legislative field hearing on Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 9:00a.m. (MDT) at Pikes Peak Regional Building in Colorado Springs, CO on Federal Geospatial Spending, Duplication and Land Inventory Management, to include H.R. 4233, the Map It Once, Use It Many Times Act, and H.R. 1620, the Federal Land Asset Inventory Reform (FLAIR) Act. MAPPS has been invited to testify.

MAPPS has been advocating for the passage of both Map It Once, Use It Many Times Act and the FLAIR Act. These legislative initiatives, if enacted, would allow the federal government to have a comprehensive understanding of what agencies are involved in geospatial activities and what land assets the federal government owns and operates. The obstacles facing the federal government's utilization of geospatial are not technical; they are political and organizational.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
