On May 14, the Government Accountability Office released its report Future Federal Adaptation Efforts Could Better Support Local Infrastructure Decision Makers. The office found that while the federal government collects data on climate change, local officials do not have easy access to it when making decisions on major infrastructure projects. The report recommended the identification of the best possible climate change data, the continued updating of this data, and the collaboration between the Secretary of Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, and industry stakeholders to include climate change data in design standards. The report was requested by Senate Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT).
