West Coast states would get faster response from the federal government for major tsunami debris under a new bill.  It's co-sponsored by representatives Suzanne Bonamici, from Oregon, and Jamie Herrera-Beutler of southwest Washington. 

 

Bonamici says it would put NOAA in charge of deciding when debris is large enough to require a federal response. 

The bill has support of 16 representatives from Oregon, Washington and California.   It would require NOAA to decide within 60 days whether a piece of tsunami debris is large enough to require federal funding.
