Not sure if there is a thread for this already, I didnt see one, so here ya go.
(from my professor here at UNCA):
"Interesting that the NWS asked for public comment about the termination of the NGM and received 1 in favor and 10 opposed. First it is interesting because only 11 non-NOAA employees responded - didn't seem like they publicized the request for comment. Second, even though 10/11 opposed the cut, they go and do it anyway. Democracy in action!"
