Dear Recipient Name

Last week, during the Environment Subcommittee Hearing of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology ("An Overview of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Budget Proposal for Fiscal Year 2025") members of Congress questioned NOAA Administrator Dr Richard Spinrad on the agency's proposed expansion of the 2008 North Atlantic Right Whale Vessel Strike Reduction rule.

The members pressed Dr Spinrad on whether NOAA included industry input in the drafting of the rule, how the rule would be enforced, and how NOAA plans to protect right whales without hurting coastal economies.
