It is better to split them up, because there is a 2 bill limit now on the clogging rule, instead of 3 back in the old Senate.

This bill is a wish list, not a piece of legislation. I am afraid I will have to deem in functionally impractical if it is not revised.

The Storm Surge, Coastal Flooding, and Tsunami Prevention Act of 2017
1. 500 Million dollars shall be allocated to research new ways to prevent and/or hinder storm surge flooding from hurricanes, tropical storms, and nor'easters along the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean coastlines of Atlasia.
2. 500 Million dollars shall be allocated to research new ways to prevent and/or hinder tsunami-based flooding from earthquakes and landslides both local and distant along the Pacific Ocean coastline of Atlasia.
3. Up to 800 Billion dollars shall be set aside and reserve for construction of various dams, barrier islands, and potential seawalls once the research of how this may be accomplished and what, if any impact this may have on the environment is complete.
4. Climate Change may also be considered, particularly along vulnerable urban coastlines for prevention of coastal flooding as well.



I would like someone to sponsor this bill, please feel free to amend it as needed, this is just a prototype but an issue I feel is frequently ignored as climate change occurs. (Even if you don't believe climate change is happening, it is imperative to stop storm surge flooding and especially Tsunamis from wreaking havoc on our shores).
